Azure AD - SSO with Confluence ?

Hello Everyone,


Our organization uses Confluence heavily however we do not have a SSO setup with it.


We have a on premise ADFS server as well as Azure AD.


Could we use ADFS or Azure AD to integrate our login with Confluence so our users will be able to use their Active Directory credentials to login?


Please note that the version of Confluence that we have in the cloud version and it is NOT on premise.

Cloud does not have any support for external directories (which are a prerequisite for SSO).  You can use internal Atlassian-Cloud users or Google accounts.  So, no, you can't do this with your Cloud service.

We're waiting for SAML support for Cloud – As Nic indicates, this is not possible right now.
