I would like to use Crowd to manage permissions to my Atlassian apps (JIRA for example), but I have a set of internal users in AD and some external users in Salesforce. AD is no problem, but can Crowd act as a IdP proxy and redirect authentication to Salesforce IdP?
Hi @Simon So ,
You can use Crowd SAML SSO Plugin to enable authentication from Salesforce for your external users. To connect to your JIRA and other atlassian applications with Salesforce through Crowd, you will also need to install the crowd SSO connector add-ons in these Atlassian applications. Using the SSO connector, any user accessing that application can either log in with AD (internal user) or choose to get redirected to Salesforce for SSO (external user).
In this case, all the SSO requests and response to and from Salesforce will go through the Crowd server. The user authentication will be done by the Salesforce and AD and Crowd can be still be used to manage user permissions.
Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for further queries or if you need any help with the setup.
