Is 2-Factor Authentication for hosted Jira (i.e. the "Cloud" product) supported?

Atlassian have made some noises about supporting it in some form, but it's a way off at the moment.

Thanks for your responses. I was surprised to find that hosted JIRA doesn't inherently support 2FA. It is an elementary feature for cloud applications and every other SaaS application we use supports it.


Dear Haris,

our JIRA plugin only supports JIRA server, as it is not possible to access the authentication system of JIRA cloud, via plugins at the moment.
