I am Marek, a Senior Product Manager for Crowd Server and Data Center here at Atlassian.
I would like to spark a discussion about challenges you have with managing users across different Atlassian on-premise products. We are always eager to hear and learn about your experience in order to make our products better and help you to be more effective.
We've heard some of your stories at Summit events, from JAC, from individual conversations with you and others, but we've love to hear more.
One common scenario that emerged from the discussions we had was that for many of your self hosted deployments Jira is the central place where you are managing your users of our products (Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket, Bamboo, or Fisheye and Crucible). In such a setup Jira ends up being a single point of failure. If they are unable to access Jira, they are unable to log into any Atlassian product.
Crowd Data Center helps to address these challenges and is a recommended user management solution for Atlassian customers who host at least two products.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Crowd, it offers one place to manage your users, groups and directories and easily integrate your identity infrastructure across all self-hosted Atlassian products.
We would like to learn about your challenges with managing users across Atlassian applications. Whether you're using Crowd today or not, we'd love to hear about capabilities or functionality that's missing.
We would love to hear your stories so that we can build the tools that you need to manage your users in the most efficient way. Please add your feedback by commenting on this post and let us know if you are interested in learning more about the problems we are a looking to solve in the future.
