I don't do a lot of work with Atlassian Access beyond configuring a directory and testing the right users and groups etc are appearing in the applications, and I can't find a simple answer in the documentation.
The scenario is that we've got our internal users in our corporate directory (say AD), accessed via Access and on a verified domain, which is working fine. We want to invite external users in, without adding them into our internal directory.

Hey @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ ,
The organization-level directory in admin.atlassian.com currently only includes managed accounts (accounts on domains you have claimed). You can still invite external users directly to individual Jira and Confluence sites.
