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

If I have, for example...

Crowd at<br< a="">>Jira at
Confluence-A at
Confluence-B at

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

At the moment, I'm finding the ones at seem to auth, and even get their cookies in the 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.


There is a common domain though. See my question above. Both "" and "" are in the 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).
