2-Factor Authentication for Crowd

I have new security requirements that require two-factor authentication on our Atlassian tools: Crowd, JIRA, Confluence, Stash, and Bamboo. I see that there is a product called "Secure Login via 2-Factor Authentication by SYRACOM that is a plugin for JIRA. Is there something similar to that for Crowd (all of our tools authenticate through Crowd) or does someone know of a different solution.

I find it hard to believe this is not a basic, built-in, capability of Crowd.

There are couple of 2FA add-ons available. But if those plugins will be enabled for JIRA cloud is up to Atlassian.

So for JIRA server, you can check out the benefits of our new 2FA JIRA add-on for two-factor authentication using your SecSign ID.

Dennis, what did you do for this? I have the same issue.

Hi Dennis,


we have recently published a Plugin for 2FA or two factor authentication for Atlassian Crowd.

Have a look at https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.secsign.secsign-crowd/server/overview


Besides this we offer 2FA plugins for JIRA and Confluence to work with the Crowd instance to map and synchronize the user.

Let us know if you need more information about the integration.

A quick question on this...if we install the plugin for Crowd would this effectively enable 2FA for a Bamboo instance that was linked to Crowd for user authentication?

Hi Christopher,


no it would not enable 2FA for Bamboo (or BitBucket). You will need to install a seperate add-on.

Currently we are working on such a Bamboo and Bitbucket add-on to supply 2FA support to these systems.

Also we are working at our Crowd plugin so in the future an admin can administer the two factor authentication centrally in crowd.
