Connecting Crowd 3.x to Azure AD

Hello,

We are try trying to configure our Azure AD as a directory in Crowd 3.1 as it is described in the documentation https://confluence.atlassian.com/crowd/configuring-azure-active-directory-935372375.html

However, the following sentence makes me doubt:

Crowd will automatically pull data from Azure AD. If that doesn't happen, you can click Synchronise nowOnce the synchronization is complete, you can check your users and groups from Azure AD by going to Users/Groups in the top navigation bar.

Does that mean that ALL the AD users will be imported in Crowd? In our case: 300.000+

Thanks for your answer

Christophe

Hi @Christophe Houberdon,

You might want to take a look at our Office 365 Directory Connector for Crowd (ODCC).

ODCC actually has a filter option that allows you to retrieve only the users who belong to specific Azure AD groups.

You can get more details about the ODCC plugin on our website: https://www.cleito.com/products/odcc/

Hi Bruno,

Thanks for your answer. We tested ODCC and it seems very promising (e.g. group filtering, incremental synchronization). My main concern is about the sustainability of the plugin which will depend on the Atlassian roadmap and future Crowd features.

Hi @Christophe Houberdon,

I understand your concern about the future of the plugin. However since as of today we have unique features (e.g. filtering options, Azure Germany support, 2FA users), we are definitely continuing to maintain and develop the plugin.

You might want to take a look at our comparison table here: https://www.cleito.com/products/odcc/#comparison

(Please note that as of today ODCC does not support incremental synchronisation)

Yes. That is correct. Crowd will pull all the user, groups and membership that it can find in the selection that you allow it too. There are available options to filter out / in users, groups and memberships:

Hi Timothy, we already did that when we connected Crowd to our LDAP. But in our case we would like to play with a user directory of type "Azure Active Directory".

I don't have a Crowd instance available to me at the moment but I would assume that it would be the same kind of filters enabled.
