Can we integrate Active Directory with Jira Software using available APIs

Hi Community,


I was wondering whether we can integrate Active Directory without using Atlassian Access and by using available APIs which are available.

Hi @Kunal Saraf 

No, we cannot!! It's not possible

We cannot change the way how authentication works for a cloud application.

Buy Access and Enjoy the features. There is already an application with so many features built for customers and why do you want to build it again with API's?

@PR Thanks for the details. Got your point.

No, you'd need to change all the user authentication code in Jira to enable it to use another external directory, and you can't do that in Cloud.  There is never going to be an API for code that doesn't exist!

@Nic Brough -Adaptavist- As you know Atlassian Access is at much higher cost. I was exploring if there is any way to utilize the APIs for authenticating using AD.

Hi Atlassian,


We are currently using Active Directory in our organization.  Can we set up authentication with our AD directly to JIRA cloud?


Please share,





Um, see the question and accepted answers.
