SSO with Azure AD and Atlassian local Accounts

We are wanting internal staff to access using SSO via Azure AD but external suppliers to access with traditional Atlassian username/Password so we wont have to create AD accounts for them.

Is this possible, or is it one or the other?

Are you using Atlassian Cloud, a hybrid cloud or on-prem environment?

For hybrid cloud / on-prem, there are several apps in the Marketplace that allow you to setup multiple login solutions and address them to different user groups.

I work for Kantega SSO, one of the marketplace vendors. One solution we allow you to set up is a login-screen that only ask for the username. Based on which user-directory or domain this user is associated with we can forward some users to AzureAD for authentication, whereas others can authenticate traditionally with password.

Please reach out if you want a demo of the solution and different redirection alternatives.

Hi, many thanks for your response.  We are using Atlassian Cloud.


Then Atlassian Access is the service for you. Hope the community here is able to help you and answer how to setup SAML SSO in parallel with traditional login for local users.
