I have a situation where I would like to run multiple instances of JIRA and Confluence and I'm wondering if Crowd is capable of handling this situation. More specifically if I have Confluence running on two different servers can I provide SSO to both Confluence instances and restrict some users to only one instance of confluence?
Yes you can. However as I remember the accumulated number of users would count towards to your Crowd license.
See this diagram. It might be usefull for you:
To expand a little on Mirek's answer, you can also have separate sets of users who can be authenticated to each instance of Confluence and JIRA if you like (or they can share the same userbase).
Crowd handles this with the concept of potentially multiple directories (e.g. your corporate LDAP directory, a crowd internal directory, etc) which you can map to applications (1 instance of JIRA would have be 1 application in Crowd), and then for each directory mapped to an application you can choose which users can authenticate to each application by choosing groups for each directory (or allowing all users in that directory to authenticate with the application).
No, there's no way to configure Confluence in OnDemand to talk to your behind-the-firewall Crowd instance. In my opinion, it's unlikely we'll add that feature in the short-medium term, because most customers who run an instance of Crowd are relatively large and usually that goes hand in hand with not wanting their data in other companies' clouds (I am a Crowd developer, but this is my personal opinion).
If you spend enough time as a Jira admin - whether you are managing a single, mid-sized instance, a large enterprise one or juggling multiple instances at once - you will eventually find yourself in ...
