SSO: stash -- crowd console, works one way but not the other

I have crowd and stash installed behind a Apached proxy, all operating on the same machine (with the same IP address). I've configured both according to all the documentation I can find. If I log into Crowd Console, SSO works fine on Stash. If I log into Stash, there is no SSO for Crowd Console (IOW, I have to log into Crowd Console even though I'm logged into Stash via Crowd). I'm at a loss how to fix this. Suggestions?

Apparently I wasn't correctly proxying in Apache. After I changed the proxy to be the following, everything worked.

ProxyRequests Off
    ProxyPreserveHost On

    ProxyPass /crowd  http://localhost:8095/crowd
    ProxyPassReverse /crowd  http://localhost:8095/crowd

    ProxyPass /stash http://localhost:7990/stash
    ProxyPassReverse /stash http://localhost:7990/stash

Hi Robert,

I just wanted to confirm. You managed to get SSO working?


Hi Robert,

The SSO configuration sometimes is tricky, but there are some key points that I'd suggest you to check, they are the following:

1. Ensure that the URLs being used to access each application and the SSO Domain value stored in Crowd are valid and match the pattern;
2. Ensure that all applications are using the Crowd authenticator at their WEB-INF/classes/seraph-config.xml files;
3. Ensure that the Directories that are assigned to each application in Crowd, If more than one, are in the exact same order;
4. If there are proxy servers being used between Crowd and the applications, make sure to add their IP addresses to theTrusted Proxy Servers list in Crowd.

I hope this information has helped.


Thanks. Here's what I've configured:

  1. The URLs are all D.C.B.A/X, like D.C.B.A/stash or D.C.B.A/crowd. The SSO Domain is D.C.B.A
  2. Stash doesn't use Seraph and doesn'thave a seraph-config.xml file.
  3. The directories are in the same order, but aren't identical. No users are shared between directories. IOW, user X exists in only one directory.
  4. There is a proxy server and its address in the Trusted Proxy Server's list, and also it is the same IP as each of the Atlassian applications which are standalone.

All of this was the existing configuration which had the problem described above. So none of this fixed the problem.

In addition, I'd suggest you specially to check if is correctly informed the application name in the file on your application.

Please check this documentation for more information:


Thanks. Yep, had did that already.
