Single Sign-on with Confluence

Hi there,

Our company is trialing Confluence as a possible new tool for technical documentation, and we have a question regarding SSO. We want the online documentation provided to our licensed clients only, which means that if they are logged into our product/software, they have direct access to the documentation. Otherwise they need to provide a valid login.


Crowd and some add-ons were mentioned in the Atlassian support site, but I’m bit confused regarding what kind of SSO mechanism we should use in our scenario. I’m wondering if anyone can give us some advice or direction that I can look into.


Thank you very much,

Do you already have a provider, like AzureAD or Okta, to link SSO back to?

This does all the basics.   You do need, ADFS, or AzureAD or Okta, or another provider setup in your environment to link back to.
