LDAP Authentication + Yubikey (2FA)

Hello everyone,


I recently deployed an AD server so I can authenticate users connecting to Jira based on their personal credentials and privilege level access according to the group they're in.

In addition, I would like to add Yubikey as 2FA so that I would enter my username and password and also be required to use the USB token.

Is it possible?

Hi @Guy Greenshtein

mO Two Factor Authentication (2FA) for JIRA provides a solution to achieve your use case.

You can connect Jira to your AD and then enable Yubikey Hardware Token as a 2FA method by installing the addon.

The end-user behaviour will be like this - when the users will try to access Jira they will be authenticated based on their personal credentials and then they will be prompted for 2nd-factor authentication using the Yubikey hardware token.

The addon is easy to configure and provides many other advanced 2FA settings which can suffice your needs in future.

P.S - I work at miniOrange, one of the best 2FA vendors on the Atlassian Marketplace. For the best pricing and free installation, I recommend contacting miniOrange Support.

You can reach out to us at or raise a ticket on the Customer Portal.


Hi @Guy Greenshtein

you may want to use the SecSign 2FA AddOn. It supports FIDO with Yubikey and many more.

If you have any further questions, feel free to contact the support at

Kind regards.

I didn't see anything about AD

Am I missing it?

Did you already connect your AD to Jira?

Then you can configure 2FA Methods for all users. It just extends the authentication for your Jira users.

So based on what you're suggesting:

1. We shall connect Jira to the local LDAP server (AD).

2. Install the SecSign 2FA add-on on Jira.

3. Using the add-on, configure 2FA option for the users.


Now I'm a bit lost about where I perform the configuration towards Yubikey server

The Yubikey is assigned and configured for the users on their first login with username and password.

As far as I understand, there's already a way to authenticate local Jira users with Yubikey using a plugin
