Anyone have a good guide for integrating JIRA (and confluence and bitbucket) with OKTA?

We are moving from an older SSO (ADFS SAML) solution to Okta and was curious if there was any good guides on things to watch for or steps to take to enable this.

Hello David,

Thank you for reaching out.

The documentation below provides you with all the instructions you need to connect Okta and Atlassian Cloud and how to provision users automatically using the Atlassian Access application:

Configure user provisioning with Okta 

Basically, once you've checked the prerequisites to configure the integration, the steps to would be:

1. Create a SCIM token in Atlassian Cloud

2. Enable SCIM API integration in Okta

3. Make sure the email address is correct in Okta

4. Push groups to Atlassian Cloud

5. Assign users to the Atlassian Cloud application in Okta

6. Configure product access for the provisioned groups and users

P.S: To get started, we recommend trying these setup instructions with test accounts and test groups in Okta, e.g. atlassian-test-jira-users and atlassian-test-confluence-users.

Starting with test accounts can help to avoid disruption when someone unintentionally unassigns users from the Atlassian Cloud app since it disables their accounts, which also removes their access to Atlassian products.

Let me know if you have any questions.
