[Solved] G Suite sync & domain verification


Dear reader, 

I created an Atlassian account to test both JIRA Cloud and Confluence Cloud with a first email address:

I then sync G Suite with Atlassian. Thus I am able to log in with with G Suite identity management but not with anymore.

Now it seems that the admin (which was associated with is lost. 

Surprisingly, the domain is no longer verified in spite of the G Suite Sync which is no compliant with the documentation:

Any idea ? 



Solution: the admin account was lost...

Hi Romain, 

Does your account exist within your G Suite identity management that is connected to your Atlassian?

When you connect G Suite to Atlassian, you also enable SSO with Google. All users under the domain sync'd from G Suite will only be able to log in with SSO. If an account on the domain is not in G Suite, but is in Atlassian, that account will be blocked from logging in. 

If you disconnect Atlassian from G Suite, you should be able to login to Atlassian with using the account password. You can then give admin privileges. Alternately, if you add to you G Suite, you should be able to login via SSO.

Hope this helps! Please let us know if we can help your further.

Hi Narmada,

Hope this message finds you well !

Thank you for your quick reply !

Indeed the solution you suggested is the perfect one. I found it by myself yesterday. To give you further information about the problem I faced to yesterday:

  • I indeed created the first account with the email address
  • I then sync my G Suite account. The login was no longer "available". Indeed all my login attempts directed me to the Google login interface and then expected the login
  • It seems that another organisation has been created, with the same domain, with login
  • Finally I managed to login again with the login. I then transfered admin rights, technical account,... to the account and merge the two organizations
  • Once connected with the again I deleted the account associated with
  • I finally sync my G Suite again (cause I the meantime, I stopped the sync via the G Suite Admin Console)

Best regards,


Hi Romain,

Glad to hear that you were able to get things sorted!
