My team has a cluster of half-dozen servers (Jira, Confluence, etc) all authenticating through Crowd using internal directories. We also have a very large SharePoint install used for the entire company. I have been asked to investigate using the SharePoint Connector to integrate SharePoint and Confluence to see if it's possible and worth doing. My research has been inconclusive but not promising. It seems that there are three possible answers:
Has anyone tried this? Is it possible and is it worth it?
You can integrate Sharepoint and Confluence using Sharepoint Connector even if you are using Crowd but Single Sign On will not work out of the box.
Confluence uses Crowd Authenticator when using Crowd SSO but Sharepoint - Confluence SSO requires a separate authenticator.
You might be able to write a new authenticator which works for all of these but I haven't seen one yet.
So I guess the answer in short is: Integration works using just configurations but not SSO.
