Crowd Port 8095 open to public(?)

Matt Donagan March 15, 2022

Does port 8095 REALLY need open to the public?

Or is that port used just to talk between Jira/Confluence/Crowd?

My server has Jira/Confluence/Crowd all on the same server (I know, one server...shame ...not my decision!) so do I really need to open a firewall port to be accessed by anyone outside of that server?

Documentation isn't really clear on that.


Thank you!

Hi @Matt Donagan 

:8095 is how anything (the apps, or administrators) talk to Crowd. If Jira/Conf/Crowd are all running on the same server, you'd likely have Confluence and Jira setup with localhost:8095/crowd as the Crowd directory hostname - that's fine, your apps can all talk to each other.

What you'd be missing in this scenario is how any of your admins can access the Crowd UI. If this is a Windows box and you've got RDP access, you could go to http://localhost:8095/crowd/ to administer, and this would function, but may limit how your admins can access Crowd.
