Azure Active Directory Integration

I would like to integrate Microsoft Azure Active Directory for

SSO with the hosted Atlassian HipChat.  However, it appears that

for LDAP/AD integration, it appears that this functionality is only

available with the self-hosted -- is this correct, or am I missing

something?  I am trying to decide between the two for a

deployment (~40 users).

I was looking at the same thing for HipChat and JIRA and it look slike you need on Prem to do this. I really wish they would get this working though.

Partial solution below, would welcome advice on how to fix the rest

You can turn on LDAPS in Azure active directory instructions on how to do so below:

This process will generate a unique IP for your LDAPS gateway, you need to move this onto a valid domain name for your domain e.g.

Once you've done so settings in Atlassian add directory are:

Name=  Whatever you want

Directory Type= Microsoft Active Directory

Hostname= the LDAPS gateway (e.g.

Port= 636, enable SSL

username: cn=userid,ou=AADDC Users,dc=yourdomain,dc=co,dc=uk

Avoid space in the user name you use for the connecting id

Password = password


Additional user dn=ou=AADDC Users

Additional group dn=ou=AADDC Users

Most settings I took defaults except:

User Object Filter=(objectClass=user)

Change this as appropiate, the default didn't work and I wanted all users

Rest of setting from memory were defaults.

Only problem is I can currently only validate passwords on users with no spaces in their CN name e.g. ExampleUser but users that have a space in their CN e.g "Example User" won't validate.

I've the same problem on both Atlassian tools and LDAP browsers however its worked for other people (ie. seems to be a problem on the Azure side for me).

let me know if this doesn't work for you or you have the space issue, will add the space fix once I have it working.
