Am I correctly interpreting the latest Confluence announcement that Atlassian will require customers to take on the additional cost and complexity of the Data Center edition to get SSO functionality?
The announcement is this one ?
SSO in Confluence is not an out of box functionality without Crowd, you need to write your own custom authenticator or use an existing :
But yes, with Confluence Data Center, there is a free add-on (by Atlassian) for SSO functionality :
Yes, if you want to use Atlassian's SAML add-on you have to have Data Center. I think that is a bit stingy myself. There are a few other options as well in the marketplace ... a couple are free.
We have an add-on that supports the whole Atlassian portefolio (JIRA, Confluence, Bitbucket, Bamboo and FisheEye/Crucible)
You have the option to authenticate using Kerberos or SAML (or in combination) and there is no need for any modification on your applications.
We support SSO on JIRA mobile, service desk, auto user creation etc.
