I have not been able to find how to add or enable 2FA/two-step authentication for extra security via apps such as Google Auth, Authy, FreeOTP, etc., while keeping the username/password to log into Confluence Server. Is there such an option out there yet?
Any other solutions?
If you need a 2FA for Confluence Server why don't you just search for 2FA on marketplace?
I've been lead to this question only because someone mentioned SSO and we are a vendor of EasySSO that integrates with SecureLogin 2FA for Confluence and I can attest that it (the 2FA plugin) works very well.
Certainly if you want to add the complexity of SAML SSO - you can look at any on the SAML plugins, but why bother?
If you’re not wanting to have to deal with additional factors for Authentication then your best option for using a simplified MFA to access Confluence would be to use SAML with SSO. SAML with SSO will allow your users to authenticate prior to accessing Confluence and MFA is completed at the SSO portal prior to the application. There are a few solutions which add SAML to Confluence via marketplace app along with the option for using Crowd | Atlassian. You may find a preset search for SAML at Atlassian Marketplace | SAML.
Additional resources which may prove helpful are as follows:
I hope this proves helpful and you’re able to start protecting your Confluence instance with MFA.
For Confluence Server & Datacenter, you can also refer to the miniOrange Confluence 2FA/MFA addon which provides a rich set of 2FA methods, such as TOTP applications(Mobile Authenticator), OTP Over Email, Security Questions, Backup Code.
It supports Mobile Authenticator applications like Google authenticators, Authy authenticators, Duo authenticators, Microsoft authenticators, Symantec VIP & so on.
Note:- Plugin is also compatible with all SSO addons.
PS: I work for miniOrange one of the top SSO & 2FA/MFA vendors in the Atlassian Marketplace. Feel free to reach out to miniOrange Support in case of any questions or need assistance with the plugin configuration.
