Hi

Do we need Domain names config for doing SSO setup for Crowd and JIRA?

Yes, you need a shared domain. E.g. jira.example.comand crowd.example.com, but not myjira.comand mycrowd.com.

Thanks Caspar

We want to design our SSO and User authentication using Crowd server & integrate with JIRA and Stash servers.

In Crowd we have Users profiles and we want to have SSO for JIRA and Stash users.

Do we need this? 1) how do we set Domain names ? 2) how we design our Topology for Crowd, JIRA and Stash?

what should be the IP address and Ports ? for Crowd, JIRA and Stash servers?

Can you please Guide us on this solution, Thanks.

regards

If you follow the instructions I linked to, it will work. IP address and ports won't make a difference for SSO, as long as you have a consistent domain across all your properties. If you need further guidance (problem analysis, solution design & implementation, etc) then I suggest you contact one of our expert partners.

No, Crowd does not require Apache in order to provide single sign on across Atlassian applications.

(I'm a Crowd developer, but in case you don't trust me, here's our documentation on e.g. connecting JIRA: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CROWD/Integrating+Crowd+with+Atlassian+JIRA;) )

You only need Apache if you'd like to integrate subversion access using Apache (or something else with Apache) and you want to use the Crowd Apache connector to authenticate users in Apache according to Crowd's userbase. Or to put it another way: you only need Apache if you want to integrate Apache, so if you don't want to use Apache, you won't need Apache. (That's a lot of "Apache"!)
