How difficult is it to change a particular user's authorization policy?

I'm trying to prepare my organization for use of Atlassian tools.  One thing we are struggling with is how to authenticate.  


Let's say I start with the default user creation to make accounts for






If I want to move to SSO or g-suite later, is it possible to put those users on that policy?  

What about vice-versa, where I start with SSO or g-suite, but want to stop using that service?

Hello @Eirik Aune,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

When adding users to a Cloud site, they will be able to login with email and password.

So, for example, you invited manually through the user management page. Then you decided to use GSuite to manage the users. If also exists in the GSuite group that you are syncing, the account will be synced and you will be able to manage that account on GSuite and they will start using SSO to log in on Atlassian Cloud products. 

If a user you’re syncing from G Suite already exists, we’ll link the G Suite and Atlassian accounts based on their primary email address and G Suite identification.

If you disconnect from GSuite, users or their permissions won't be removed. The difference is that you won't be able to manage their accounts. They will still be able to login using Google credentials or using email and password. 

When you disconnect from G Suite, users permanently stop syncing. Your users can still log in to your products with their Google credentials or log in with Atlassian credentials after they reset their password. However, their details won't sync when you make changes to their Google accounts.

If you have any other questions regarding this matter, please let us know.
