Can we have 2FA over SAML login implemented?

Hi Team,


We have implemented SAML using Atlassian access, and we want to add one more layer of security 2FA provided by Atlassian access.

will it work? Kindly share with us documents to implement and how it can work?


Thanks & Regards

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.

Refer "SAML single sign-on with two-step verification and password policy" section here :

Hi Jayant,
