To prevent internal data leaks, we are looking to block login attempts to Atlassian products from domains other than our company's domain. For services like Google and Slack, it's possible to control access by analyzing the headers in the firewall.

For Slack, the network requirements and how to whitelist Slack workspaces can be found here: Slack Network Requirements.

For Google, instructions on how to choose and configure a web proxy server to block certain accounts are available here: Google Support.





Is it possible to implement similar access control for Confluence, to ensure that logins are restricted to our company domain only?

Thank you.

Hi Aron, 

Yes, you can implement access control in Confluence to restrict logins to users different from your company domain. Confluence provides several options for managing user access and authentication.  Domain Restrictions: You can configure Confluence to restrict logins to users from specific email domains. This is typically done through SAML or LDAP authentication, depending on your organization's setup. Another option is via User Management. Within Confluence itself, you can manage user permissions and groups to control access to spaces, pages, and other content. This allows you to further refine access control based on roles and responsibilities within your organization. By implementing one or a combination of methods, you can ensure that only users from your company domain can access Confluencewhich will provide  an additional layer of security and control over your Confluence instance.

To be more specific or detailed we would need some more input on questions such as what is your subscription plan with Atlassian, do you use Premium or other. Do you use Atlassian access? 

Hope this helps.
