It depends on the authenticator that you are using. Most authenticator out there that I have seen override the JIRA authentication with their own mechanism.

Yes, this sounds like somethig we support.

With our add-on you can use Kerberos, SAML or in combination.

If both Kerberos and SAML are configured, then Kerberos is tried first. If the client does not support Kerberos, then the username filed is diplayed. If you type an internal username, then the password dialogue is shown. If the user types a known domain he will be redirected to the IDP for authentication.

We support JIRA mobile, JIRA Service Desk etc, and there is no need for any file system modifications.
