Active Directory integration

Hello Atlassian Community, 

Currently in the company i'm working for, we have Jira Service Desk, Jira Core and Confluence.

We are looking into moving everything to the Cloud versions, and one of the topics of discussion at the moment is the user authentication.

Currently we have LDAP setup on all the jira products, so we are wondering how do we best integrate Jira Cloud, for example, with an on prem Active Directory?

Kind Regards,

Hi @Hugo Godinho 

This answer suggests this might be possible.

I would check out:

These pages mention what is needed/available, and what additional products you might require in Cloud (like Atlassian Access).

That is good info Stephen and I want to dig into this more to understand if Access is in fact not required which would be really nice. My understanding has historically been it was required. Fingers crossed.

Thanks @Stephen Wright _Elabor8_ and @Jack Brickey 

I will have a read on this now!! 

Appreciate it.


Have a good weekend.

My understanding is that for Cloud you would need to incorporate Atlassian Access. Here is an old issue that was recently updated that discusses the various integrations with user management.

I will have a look at that request.

Have a good weekend.
