I currently have five Atlassian applications on my network - JIRA, Confluence, Bamboo, Stash and FishEye/Crucible. Right now, all of them authenticate against JIRA for the users and groups, and JIRA authenticates against Active Directory (on Windows Server 2012). We have about 20 (current) users and 20 groups.
I would like to get rid of Active Directory from our network as the only thing it is doing is handling authentications for JIRA. (The two domain controllers are the only Windows servers on our network.) So, I'd like to move to Crowd instead. My question is twofold:
A supplementary question is, can Crowd handle user password management? In other words, can users go there to reset and change their password?
Hi Doug - you are on the right track of using Crowd as the Auth hub .. With the apps registered to it for user, group and authentication management. More than "migrate", I think of it as more "reconfiguring" AD to Crowd. Semantics. Once done, disabling the old configs to JIRA. You will also get SSO between the apps.
Its hard to give a fail proof answer without specifically seeing exactly what you have running / configd so far but what you want to do is pretty normal and the whole point of Crowd, so I refer you to the Crowd doc.
Btw - indeed there is a pw reset portal for users in Crowd but not typically used. Instead set up the SMTP configs on Crowd and users can reset pw thru email via the app login page. If configd right, once you reset the pw in one app, it will proliferate to the rest.
Can likely do this all in a few hours when know how to do it; maybe a little longer if just learning. Sounds like a good weekend project for you
