SSO from other sources - eg auth0

We would like to be able to log into our Atlassian on demand applications (we use JIRA agile and Confluence mainly at this point) using auth0, or our own user database. It seems there aren't many options in this area yet? Or am I just not finding them?

Will the new SAML support allow this I wonder? (currently in Beta)

Now that there is beta SAML support implemented in Atlassian Cloud, I've tried to ask for help from Auth0 on this to see if it's possible:

I've also opened a support request with Atlassian to try and get some help (but I don't think that's publicly visible).



Atlassian support repsonse:

  • "Auth0 is not on our supported SAML providers list at the moment and we don't have the internal solution to help on the integration"


This does actually work.  See the Auth0 community link above for details.  Watch out for the issue with changing SAML providers if you've been testing with a different provider and then trying to get Auth0 integration working.


Since this comes first in google results, I will revive this thread.

I have set up a plugin in github that enables auth0 together with local login. 

But that plugin is just for the server flavour, isn't it?
