This user's Atlassian account has been disabled.

One of my service reps is getting issues to login to Jira SD cloud.

After checking in admin.atlassian I found out that his user is disabled and presented in fact with this message:

This user's Atlassian account has been disabled. Contact the user's organization administrators to enable the account.


Unlike other accounts, this one I cannot re-enable or 'grant site access' and quite literally nothing else I can do actually. 
Can someone please instruct me how I can re-enable this account please?

Hello Ayrton,

Thank you for reaching out to us! Happy to help.

This error means that the user's Atlassian account has been disabled everywhere in our system, and not just on your Cloud instance. It would need to be re-enabled by the organization's admin. You'll need to check the domain of their email address and then find the person who administers the user accounts for that domain.

As the organization admin, they will be able to re-enable the account from From there, click on Directory > Managed Accounts. Click on the account, and then click Reactivate account on the top right. If you do not have these options, then you are not the admin for the organization.

I hope that clarifies things! If you're having trouble determining the admin for your organization, please reach out to Cloud Support.



Hello Shannon,

I'm having the same issue, unable to find "Directory > Managed Accounts" path... Please help!

Hello Ryan,

Thank you for letting us know you are running into the same issue.

If you're not able to find Directory > Managed Accounts, then that means you are not the Organization Admin for your domain. Keep in mind that the role Site Admin is different from the Organization Admin. The Site Admin administers the Cloud instance itself, but the Organization Admin administers all email addresses in the Atlassian User system under one email domain. So that means that you could have users on separate Cloud instances but all from the same email domain as yours.

You'll want to reach out to your Organization Admin to help you with this. If you aren't sure who that is, you would have received an email when the domain was claimed in our system, and including the name of the Organization Admin there.

If you aren't able to find that email, please contact the Cloud Support Team. They will be able to help you get in touch with that admin.



I have the same problem, and have already tried the suggested solution. Now, in the user is no longer disabled, but he is still disabled in user management on Is something not syncing right? I have already waited three days for the enabling to be reflected in user management.

hello I have a similar problem, in my case I deleted a user, then I invited him again and he did not let me send the invitation because it says that it is deactivated, when in fact it no longer exists. What can I do there?Rechazo de invitación.png


One of the users who i was adding to user management list and provisioning a license to, shows as an inactive user with the following error  - This user's Atlassian account has been disabled. Contact the user's organization administrators to enable the account.


I am my org's organization admin. I am able to navigate to Directory --> managed accounts. 

it asked me to verify the domain first and shows a wait time of 72 hours
