Passing credentials to JIRA

Hello all,

is it possible to avoid the signon screen entirely for users which are authenticated against the Windows Domain Controllers or any other authentication provider (Kerberos LDAP PAM ...).

This would mean either Tomcat or an Apache reverse proxy is configured to perform NTLM authentication directly between browser and AD. The credentials are passed on to Jira (on success). If not authenticated, the normal login screen appears.

This is what "real" single signon would be all about.

Best regards

Hi Maba

JIRA and Confluence are not able to handle it. However, this can be enabled integrating those applications with Crowd. For further details, please review the following link:

Not ideal, but if thats the way it is, then there is nothing to be done about it.
