Can Atlassian Access be added to an existing organization?

We'd like to integrate SAML 2.0 SSO with our Atlassian cloud suite.  However, when you attempt to subscribe to Atlassian Access, the site forces you to create a brand new organization.

Is it possible to add Atlassian Access to an existing organization instead?

Hi @Justin Wienckowski , that's strange. If you click "Get started" on it should take you to a screen where you can choose from your existing organization(s). We'll look into it.

In any case, if you can access your existing organization from, you can follow the instructions here to start a free trial

I'm afraid neither of these approaches worked.

When I use "Get Started" from, my existing organization does not appear in the list to select.  I am in both the site-admin and administration groups.

When using the second link you suggested, the instructions state: 

From your organization at, go to any of the pages for Atlassian Access features (e.g. User provisioningTwo-step verification) and click the Learn more button.

None of these options appear in the admin console for me, and the options that do appear do not contain an upsell for Atlassian Access.

Am I missing some sort of permission?

Hey @Justin Wienckowski ,

It sounds like you may not be an administrator for the organization that your site is a part of. It requires a separate "org administrator" permission that sits above both the "site-admins" group (which makes you an administrator of your site) and the "administrators" group (which is used for Confluence administration).

If you contact our support team, we can help you identify who the administrators are and they can add you. I apologize for the difficulty you're going through.
