Atlassian Access for sub-set of users

We are looking at using the Jira / Confluence Cloud and wanted to use SAML to protect our this particular cloud instance, so we signed up for Access. The cloud instance is for a small *subset* of all our users. It looks like from reading, I need to pull in all users, not simply the one Okta Group that I want to have authenticate with Jira / Confluence Cloud.


So far I have:

  • Verified ownership of my domain
  • Configured Okta and Access with a directory 


I have not:

  • Claimed accounts in Access


My concern is we have many teams using a email address that we *don't* want to manage and these teams are using other Atlassian Cloud products. 

If I claim the accounts are those users now required to use Access and I have to pay for and control their acces? I don't want to get charged $3 / user / month for these other users if they are now in Access.

Hi @Casey Daniell , Atlassian Access has a multiple authentication policies feature that allows you to pull subsets of users into different policies, including a non-billable one that will be excluded from the Atlassian Access coverage. Here's additional documentation that may be helpful: Does this help?
