How to sign in users with Google authentication information


I have a hard time finding a nice, simple step-by-step guide on how to add google authentication to JIRA Server so the users we have on Google Apps for business can sign in to JIRA with their Google sign in data.

Is there anything like that?

Or if not - is there anywhere a simple, clear piece of information how that should be possible to do (I don't know, appfusions third party plugins, crowd server, ...)?

Considering this is rather easy on JIRA cloud, I'd imagine this should be too complicated for server.


Thank you very much in advance.


Best regards,

Google SSO for JIRA - email for eval licenses or references. 

Also supports 2-step auth, and JIRA ServiceDesk. Flexible button configuration, and other options.

Hi There

I'm not sure if the method below works since I haven't test it, although, I believe it might help you! smile



Thanks Luciano - you are correct - And AppFusions has dozens of happy customers running (and renewing) on these authenticators that were completely re-engineered last summer in support of Google's latest Google+ secure protocol. email for evaluation - plug and play (with configs to Google). Just works. p.s. While on the Google topic, Google Drive in Confluence and JIRA (and Google Analytics plugin too) were also completely reworked as well. They also were affected by Google's deprecation of APIs that will be in official affect April 20.

I believe you can achieve this by using the following add-on for JIRA:

Hope it helps! smile


No - this is inaccurate. OpenID has been deprecated by Google and will officially be dead as of April 20 (when no more grandfathering). AppFusions re-built their Google OpenID-compatible authenticators from scratch last summer, and dozens of customers run on these authenticators. and there is a Confluence one too (and maybe Stash coming). tyo evaluate.

Hello there,

JIRA server doesn't support direct integration with Google Apps. You can try using Crowd, please take a look at the following link for further information: 

Thanks and regards,

No this is inaccurate. Crowd does not help with Google domain logins per the question. It is different. (and honestly - not sure, but don't think this also has been updated to latest Google+ secure protocols)

@Andre Quadros Petry the sooner I'd ask, the sooner I'd find it it seems. Thank you for your response! smile


@Paula Silveria: I was trying the CROWD thingie but I just couldn't get it out the right way. I'll look into that. Thank you!

Matic - this does not solve your problem -
