JIRA User Server vs Crowd ?

Is the JIRA User Server the same as Crowd ? Where does one do the config for JIRA User Server e.g listening port?

3 answers

Jira uses port 8080 and crowd uses 8095. The server.xml is where you change the port and it is located in your JIRA installation's conf folder.

For example. C:\Program Files\Atlassian\JIRA\conf\server.xml

To change the port, take a look at this doc

No, JIRA has it's own internal authentication system. Crowd is our SSO option for Atlassian products. You can make use of Crowd to authentication your users across all Atlassian products installations.

Please take a look at https://www.atlassian.com/software/crowd/overview

Hi, if you're asking about how it works technically, JIRA uses an embedded version of Crowd (a lot of the code is shared). The only distinction is that JIRA's user server is limited by performance, the ability to handle SSO and a few other advanced features.
