Hello Ulrich, at the present time we do have support OpenID 2.0 a new request for OpenID Connect has been filed under our bug tracker with the key CWD-3995.

For more information on implementation of new features for Atlassian products, you can review this document.

More specifically, we would like to add support for OpenID Connect at some point in the future, but it's not on our roadmap at the moment. (I'm a Crowd developer.)

any progress on this? @Guilherme Nedel [Atlassian] @Caspar Krieger ?

It's on our current roadmap, can't share any timeline, but there will be an update very soon.

@Gaurav I'd like to connect Grafana to crowd. It feels like I should be able to do it with crowdid but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to plug the crowdid openid single endpoint /openidserver/op into the grafana generic_oauth plugin ( I'm no expert) but I'm starting to think it is not possible. My only lifeline is if crowd supported openid connect as I think this format would fit in the grafana generic oauth config. Is there any update on when it might be arriving? Even if it it is never going to arrive it would be good to know so I can start planning what I do next ?

Atlassian should really urge to add support for OpenID Connect to Crowd roadmap, or customers will consider moving to authentication as a service solutions such as AuthO or Stormpath.

It's on our roadmap, can't share any timeline, but there will be an update soon.

That issue can't be viewed.  @Guilherme Nedel [Atlassian]

We'd be very interested in this as well - we are heavy internal users of Kubernetes, which has recently added support for OpenID Connect for authentication and authorization.


Can you give a link to a documentation of crowdID ? how to use that to authenticate User from WebApp ? 

Thank you In advance.
