JIRA 6.3.6 ADFS connection

Hi all,

I have a project that one of requirements is that users should be manage by AD groups. JIRA is in DMZ but ADFS is in LAN. We do not want open ports at DMZ. but we need import users to JIRA groups. LDAP is not good.

ps. something like connection ADFS with Office365

Your JIRA server needs to be able to reach your LDAP server.  That's all.  You need to open that route.  If it's closed, you can't use AD.

An option is to use a proxy or relay of course - have LDAP server in the DMZ that is replicated from LAN or something like Crowd providing a directory of users to JIRA and that draws it's info from the LDAP on your LAN.

But no matter how you approach it, you need a route.  Direct or indirect.
