Can I use Crowd as an IdP in a SAML2 configuration?

Would be great if Crowd could be an IdP in a SAML2 IdP/SP relationship.

Hello @S Alexandre Lemaire

As of today (Crowd v3.2.3), Crowd only supports SAML for Google Apps integration, in which case it actually acts as an IdP. However Crowd's development team recently announced that they are planning to deliver general SAML support in Crowd in the near future. No release date so far but they are definitely working on it.

Hello Bruno Vincent,

Is there any update on SAML support in Crowd?

Hi @thejeswarareddy_r 

Well yes, sort of. Atlassian released Crowd SSO 2.0 in Crowd 3.4 (Data Center only). This is basically SAML authentication for Atlassian products (e.g. Jira, Confluence), the Crowd server acting as a SAML Identity Provider.

However general SAML support, which means Crowd acting as a standard SAML IdP for any application (not just Atlassian's) with any kind of specific configuration has not been delivered yet. I suggest that you start watching CWD-1822 for updates on this.

Hi @S Alexandre Lemaire


Crowd data center supports crowd as an IDP. For more, you can refer attached-link below.

Is there a solution for non-data-center users? We use Crowd server and are looking for Crowd as an IdP.
