How can we auto login users already authenticated in LDAP?

Hi all. We're trying to avoid users requirng to enter their password every time they open Jira (and Confluence). Our users are authenticated using LDAP and can login to Jira using their AD accounts. I've seen several posts where people mention they have auto login working but for the life of me I can't find a way to do it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
