Is it possible to start Confluence with a string tell to use SSO?

Hoi, Currently we use Crowd to authenticate and have a sort of SSO. Is it possible to try to start a session with Confluence where it autmatically take the network-login-name and network-login-password from Active Directory without to specify Username / Password to logon?

Authentication against Crowd works ok; the user is authenticated using the "Delegated Authentication Directory" setup to a Microsoft Active Directory.

This will help to help users to do not again authenticate, while they are authenticated against Active Directory.

This is what we used to do NTLM SSO. Is this what you are looking for?

Hi David,

Thanks for your response. In fact i'd like to use the supported Crowd service, but i should support SSO using the information from Active Directory to validate and use these credetials to also logon in Confluence using Crowd with an Delegated Authentication Directory to Microsoft Active Directory.

Your solution is possible and could be the only alternative. In the page

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CROWD/Configuring+Confluence+for+NTLM+SSO

is mentioned the NTLM plugin is not officially supported by Atlassian. But i will do a request by Atlassian to check out.

On Atlassian Marketplace a (new) thirdparty addin is available:
