We have Google Apps and we are questionning the need of SAML to sign in


if we have Google Apps sync activated, what value does it add to us to use SAML ?

Hello Ludovic!

I work for a company that offers SAML to JIRA, Confluence, Bitbucket, Bamboo and FishEye/Crucible. 

We integrate with Google G Suite and other SAML 2.0 prividers. The setup is wizard-based with specific instructions built into the plugin.

Due to technical limitations in the Atlssian Cloud, we only have add-ons for the Atlassian Server products. Also, you can choose to manage your users manually.

If this sounds interesting, try it out:

Thank you Lars, but I am questionning the addon value to SAML since I have already linked Google Apps to Atlassian. Thanks

I am also faing problems having OKTA SAML and G suite sync simultaneously.

Could any one please guide me about it

In  that case you need to contact Jira Technical Team to configure G Suite and SAML for you at a time, charges would apply.

This can be configured using G Suite. To allow single sign-on (SSO), you can use SAML.
