Can subdomains be used in crowd across components as long as they're in a common domain?

If I have, for example...

Crowd at http://www.example.com/crowd<br< a="">>Jira at http://www.example.com/issues
Confluence-A at http://www.example.com/wiki
Confluence-B at http://confluence.internal.example.com

And I have it set up with .example.com the domain for SSO, should everything work?

At the moment, I'm finding the ones at .internal.example.com seem to auth, and even get their cookies in the .example.com domain, but there is no SSO when going to one of the others. The same login credentials work, but one must re-login.

Hi Matt, Crowd SSO depends on creating a cookie in your browser and cookies can't be created with more than one domain, so SSO won't work across domains. You should set the domain cookie in Crowd according to the example in this doc.

I hope it helps.

Cheers

There is a common domain though. See my question above. Both ".internal.example.com" and ".example.com" are in the .example.com domain, so if the cookie is set there, the browser sends it to both. I later learned this is possible with upgrades to crowd and confluence. Earlier versions didn't handle cookies properly (IMHO).
