Custom Authenticator for Stash/Jira/Crowd

We're in the process of integrating Confluence into our project, and I've already discovered how to implement a custom authenticator via the Seraph package. We're looking also at purchasing / implementing Jira and Stash, but I can't find documentation on how to implement our enterprise SSO authentication with these products. I've also looked a bit at Crowd, but again see no documentation for logging into these products via our enterprise sso and a custom authenticator.

I did find documentation about implementing a custom directory, and also found documentation on configuring a supported directory for delegated authentication. Is it possible to utilize a custom directory for delegated authentication, and would this be the method to implement our enterprise SSO for login?

What is the recommended manner to implement an enterprise SSO, not simply an enterprise ldap, for authentication with these products?

Hi Curt

All this seems very possible. AppFusions has solved many similar SSO/authentication integrations between Atlassian products and other solutions

Some examples of our work:

Hi Curt -

Stash is also in the mix now too - release is imminent. Can also help with your licensing needs, as a reseller.
