Hi Megha,

When SAML single sign-on is configured, users won't be subject to Atlassian two-step verification provided by Atlassian Access even if 2FA is configured for your organization. This means that two-step verification is essentially "skipped" during the login process for users enabled for SAML Single sign-on.

We recommend that you use your identity provider's 2FA policy or any equivalent offering instead.
