Selective Sync with Azure Active Directory

I'm using the Azure AD integration that was added in 3.0 and which works great.

However my AD contains more users than I want to give access to JIRA for. This gives me two problems:
1. The user dropdowns are more cluttered than they need to be
2. I am pushed into a higher user tier than necessary.

Is there a way to only sync a sub-part of my Azure AD to crowd?

Hi Frederik,

Regarding problem #2, only users who can log into your applications will be taken into account (in other words, only the users who are set as allowed to authenticate in Crowd). More details are available on Atlassian's documentation: https://confluence.atlassian.com/crowdkb/how-are-crowd-users-counted-towards-the-application-user-limit-246481311.html

Regarding problem #1, you might want to take a look at the ODCC add-on (Office 365 Directory Connector for Crowd) which has filtering options and allows you to retrieve only users belonging to specific groups: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.cleito.odcc/server/overview

(Disclaimer: I work for the vendor of the ODCC add-on).

Hope this helps!

Bruno

Thanks a lot!

Regarding the ODCC add-on: Are planning on continuing development now that a part of the functionality is in the core?

You're welcome.

Well, that's a  very good question. As long as we have unique features (e.g. filtering options, support for users with Multi-Factor Authentication enabled, short username), I think we will continue development. If Atlassian implements such features in the native connector, we'll obviously have to discontinue it.
