I am dealing with developers who have created a authentication realm that they use for a Tomcat application. They are wondering if we can bring up a separate Tomcat instance with that same code for authentication and host JIRA within that. Is this possible and if so, how is it done?
You will have to write your own custom authenticator to do this (https://docs.atlassian.com/atlassian-seraph/latest/sso.html). Of if you can pass the basicAuth into the request going into JIRA, that would work too.
Thank you for your response. I don't claim much knowledge in this area, but I have the impression that the authentication realm the developer was asking about is not a SSO implementation. I believe it is providing authentication against a common SAML database. So, I don't think the idea is to be pre-authenticated by the time you arrive at the Jira URL, but rather to have the Tomcat authentication realm provide the username/password confirmation. Unfortunately, due to politics beyond my control, I can't directly ask the developers at this time.
