We are using the entire atlassian suite of products like bamboo,confluence,Jira,Crucible etc.
Right now for authentication, Crowd with LDAP is being used.
We have other custom applications which uses Header based authentication (SSO/Siteminder).
Is it possible to use the authentication of our custom applications along with crowd for atlassian products.
We do not want to use crowd for our custom application.
How I think it can be done is
1.Create custom authenticator for each of confluence,jira etc
2.Use the header authentication system to authorize and check crowd for the user information as well and then give final authentication.If user doesnt exist create the user in crowd.
Is there any other nice way to do this?Any direction on this is appreciated.
Yep, that would be the way to go about it. You'll be wanting Crowd's REST APIs and this documentation on Single Sign On Integration with JIRA and Confluence (I didn't find any handy links for Bamboo and FishEye/Crucible, so don't forget to test them out before you commit to this project).
