Does Crowd create an SSO environment for Active Directory users? If I implemented Crowd with JIRA, would users be automatically authenticated with JIRA when they log onto Windows? Looking at Crowd, I cannot tell if it is just for managing credentials in Atlassian applications, or if it allows what I am thinking. Also, if I were to implement Crowd, would it be able to change credentials/user settings in AD?
To achieve auto-login with Jira (and Confluence) using Windows logged in user, you need a custom authenticator.
One of the solutions is to setup NTLM authenticator.
TechTime Initiative Group, an Atlassian Expert in New Zealand has been providing NTLMv2 authenticator for Confluence and Jira, based on Jespa from IOPlex for over 3 years at a quite reasonable one-off price of NZ$150 (plus Jespa's license fee). You can download a free trial to use with trial Jespa and eventually buy authenticator+Jespa bundle directly from us.
Crowd is not really required in the case of auto-login, though if you have other applications in the picture it may come handy, though often purely for administrative purposes).
