As Nic correctly indicates – the package for on-premise JIRA has this ability in general. However, this is not possible on JIRA Cloud, Atlassian's own hosted solution. Please see JIRA Cloud Restricted Functions for more information.

We may see SAML Integration at some point, please vote and discuss your use-case on this feature suggestion – https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/ID-80

Yes, just tell JIRA to use AD read-only, and then do all your users and groups in AD.

Ack.  Cloud.  Sorry, I forgot . Steven's answer is far better than mine!
