Bamboo, Crowd SSO and SSO Domain

Hi We have bamboo using our Crowd install in a SSO type configuration. Bamboo is configured to pull user info from a Crowd SSO active directory directory via a crowd application. I can login to bamboo with my active directory account with no problem.

I have setup crowd for a SSO Domain of so that I can go between,, and

This works between Jira and Confluence but i have to login to Bamboo.

I have the following line in my seraph.config file
<authenticator class="com.atlassian.crowd.integration.seraph.v25.BambooAuthenticator"/>

Any thoughts?

Even though bamboo and crucible where on the same server as Jira, Confluence and Crowd, I had to add a trusted proxy server ip address in crowd to fix this. I am guessing the bamboo and crucible must be binding with

The fix is to set your trusted proxy server in Crowd admin

YOu can also specify localhost instead of /myserver/crowd in your file. Especially useful when your proxy uses different IPs

I suspect that this is related to a local user that I had setup before I created the Crowd AD directory with the same name and / or some sort of case sensitivity issue.

not sure how to resolve yet. I am able to login to bamboo with the same credentials that I used in Jira and Confluence but it doesnt automatically have me authenticated in bamboo.

Did you remove the user created before SSO? I would give that a shot to eliminate the conflict between the same user name in Bamboo.

how do I do that. Its in the built in configuration or stored in the db?

Expanding my comment into an answer...

Make sure that bamboo is configured to use Crowd via the admin panel, /admin/userManagement.action, and that you also edited the file as directed.

then visit the user management and under the "Operations" column should be a remove/delete link next to the orginal user you made manually via bamboo /admin/user/searchUsers.action

For the second step you may need to temporarily designate a colleaque as an admin and have them remove your old name.
