If I want to use the Google Apps authentication for JIRA Cloud, does that mean every employee will be added to JIRA by default? I only want a subset of the employees (only development and QA) using JIRA. I don't want to accidentally create a bunch of unwanted seats.
I believe the way you're planning to integrate Google Apps with JIRA Cloud is not possible. Once you enable the connection with Gapps, all users will be integrated.
