How can I implement SSO with Atlassian Cloud tools?

We use Confluence, JIRA, Bitbucket and Bamboo. My company has an identify provider that speaks SAML2.0, could probably speak other protocols too. We can't use Google for compliance reasons. What are our options?

None. 

Well, actually, there's always options - move off Cloud to a provider who will let you do this, or drop the idea if you're staying on Cloud (and hope Atlassian add something soon)

Cloud will only has the internal user directory or google accounts, so there's nothing you can do to hook it up to a SAML enabled directory

@Nic Brough [Adaptavist] is correct.  

In case you are thinking 'What about Crowd?' which is Atlassian's SSO product.   Crowd does not work on the Atlassian Cloud, but might help if you elect to upgrade from Cloud to the Server product (for example on Amazon Web Services).  

Migration from Cloud to Server, and Server to Cloud is straightforward.
