currently we're using Jira Core and Confluence Server with Active Directory Authentication and a configured Application Link between the applications.
Is there any way to get SSO working between booth applications?
To achieve SSO between the applications you will need to setup Atlassian Crowd or install a SSO add-on on Jira and Confluence.
The application links are API calls between the applications that should not be affected by SSO.
I work for Kantega SSO, one of the top marketplace vendors. We allow you to setup SSO through both the Kerberos and SAML 2.0 protocols. Active Directory supports Kerberos out of the box, allowing you to setup password-free authentication to your Jira / Confluence environment. Please reach out to our support team if you need guidance for setting SSO up in your environment.
Yes, you will need one licence for each of the Atlassian applications. In your case you need two licenses, -one for Jira Core and one for Confluence. You see the pricing scheme here: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/apps/1211923/kantega-sso-saml-kerberos-for-jira?hosting=server&tab=pricing
We are available to assist you. You can also book a video meeting where we setup the configurations together over shared screens.
We do not charge additionally to help our customers onboard and setup our product.
You also have a look at our step-by-step guides for configuring Integrated Windows Authentication through Kerberos and SAML SSO.
Hi @Philipp Kayser .
To enable the SSO in both the applications you need a Central Identity management application which will be connected to both JIRA and Confluence for Single Sign-On like the Crowd, ADFS, Azure AD, miniOrange, etc. In case, If you don't have any IDP right now, you can take a look into the miniOrange IDP available for both Cloud and Op-Premise version.
Also, right now, JIRA and Confluence do not support any SSO Protocols like SAML OAuth, etc but you can enable SSO support in both the Application using the third-party add-on i.e. JIRA SAML SSO and Confluence SAML SSO.
You can reach out to miniOrange at email@example.com in case if you need any additional information.
Full disclosure: I work for the miniOrange. We are the Atlassian Marketplace top vendor.
