To make JIRA and Confluence available to our employees outside of our firewall, we would require multi-factor authentication using a security code in addition to the users password. In particular we use VIP Access by Symantec.
Is this currently supported? Does anyone have similar constraints and solution that they are willing to share?
The power of these tools would be even greater if we could access them outside of our corporate network, which requires multi-factor authentication.
Any information is greatly appreciated!
VIP Access is not supported. You would have to built a custom authenticator around that. For more details, check the docs at https://developer.atlassian.com/display/CROWDDEV/Crowd+Developer+Documentation
Thank you for your response. Just wanted to make sure we don't invest time in creating/exploring a solution that Atlassian has already solved.
If I wanted to submit this as a feature request, as I believe this maybe a need of many enterprises, what would be the best avenue?
Pedro, we track feature requests on https://jira.atlassian.com ; the most applicable existing issue would be that for generic 2 factor authentication ( https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CWD-677 ); please feel free to vote for and comment on that issue with your requirements (more detail is better!).
Hi Tomas, that depends on Atlassian: currently it is not possible based on missing hook to integrate a secure login between their cloud products and the users' browsers. It would have to be installed on their servers but that's what is not provided. Using Atlassian Connect is not sufficient enough as you can by-pass requests. Kind regards, Frank
