Atlassian Cloud Password Policy

We subscribe to the Atlassian Cloud services and have JIRA and Confluence.  Although we've verified our domains, we don't subscribe (pay for) Atlassian Access - so we have no way of managing the password policy for managed user accounts.  Fine.  WHAT is the password policy that's enforced by default with you DON'T have Atlassian Access?  Our auditors are asking and I can't find anything in the documentation to tell me.

Hi Matthew,

The standard password requirement is 8 to 100 characters. There are no constraints on character complexity.

You're completely correct that the documentation can't be found. I've opened a ticket internally and we're working on getting the documentation updated. Once the updated documentation is live, I'll post the link here.

Thanks,
Daniel

Update: the password requirements are now documented on our Password Policies article.

I don't think it is 8 characters as someone from security did 4 characters and it was accepted?

Hey Sanjeev, welcome to the Community!

I've just tested password lengths of 1-7 characters and they all fail. Here's some proof of this in action, the failure with 6, increasing to 7, and still having it fail:test_create.gif

 

If you are currently subscribed to Atlassian Access, it's possible for your organization administrator to set a password strength requirement lower than what we require for unmanaged accounts. For example, setting a 'weak' policy would allow a user to select a password like 'n98k'. The fix for this is simply to require stronger passwords in your policy configuration!

Cheers,
Daniel

Hello,

Thank you for your answer Daniel.

But in the password policy you say that you use entropy score.

If we choose very strong option what is the minimum score used ?

in the exemple you show a password with 11 of lenght and 4 of complexity.

What happen if we want to set the min lenght to 12?

Thanks

@Lionel SAMUEL we use the zxcvbn library to calculate the entropy. There's not so much a concept of length requirements for strength - instead it looks at the characters used (and subtracts common passwords plus some obvious no-no's like the username).

For lots of information about how zxcvbn calculates the score, check out this informative blog post. If the policy at your company sets a 12 character limit, I would recommend setting the complexity to "Strong" after reviewing how the score is calculated. As an alternative, you could use an Atlassian Access subscription to set up your accounts with SAML at another authentication provider (Okta, Azure AD, etc) where you may have more precise password policies available.

Cheers,
Daniel
