2FA for JIRA and Confluence Edited

Hi All -

We are looking for options to implement 2FA (2 factor authentication) for JIRA and Confluence.

We have JIRA and confluence both set up on-premise. Can someone please suggest the options available.

If 2FA is not a viable option, then what are other ways to implement tighter login mechanism?

For us, 2FA means when you enter your userid/password along with a number from the RSA token.

Hi Payal,

There are add-ons you can try.  One that I'm aware of is 2-Factor Auth (2FA) Secure Login - JIRA.

In addition, please vote on CWD-677.



I am staggered that there isn't any real kind of secure log in for Confluence Cloud.  We pay a lot of money to use it and I do not feel that our data is very secure.

Hi Payal,


there are other plugin to enable two-factor authentication for JIRA and Confluence (and even Atlassian Crowd)

The add-ons provided by SecSign Inc. does not need any additionaly usb-tokens or the input of generated numbers.

The solution of SecSign is a true 2-factor authentication and a 2-channel authentication as well.

The add-ons provided by SecSign Inc can be found at:

2FA add-on for JIRA by SecSign

SecSign 2FA add-on for Confluence

SecSign 2FA add-on for Atlassian Crowd

Information about the installation process and the login procedure can be found at:

Hello there,

You may refer to the plugin below that works for me as expected.

For Jira:- Click Here

For Confluence:- Click Here


The above plugin also has an advanced user management feature so that both individuals and groups can take 2FA action.
