Though it is exactly the same group of users, that access both Confluence and Jira in our setup, each user still needs to login separately to both.
Is there a way to unify the login? Both system are accessed through the same vhost here: example.com/jira and example.com/wiki, so sharing a cookie should not be a problem. Can it be the same cookie (with the Path set to "/"), however?
Thanks, Jobin, for the prompt answer. However, we already have the single auth backend -- the corporate Active Directory. Both applications access it in exactly the same way... Is there a way to make them see and respect each other's auth-cookies?
You can write your own authenticators for both JIRA and Confluence to talk to any SSO solution. Sharing the same user base is only the pre-requisite.
JIRA and Confluence already support the Crowd authentcator but that is useful only if you buy Crowd.
There are two cookies in my browser right now -- both are from the same server (one hosting both applications), both are named JSESSIONID, with the cookie's path set to "/jira/" for one cookie and "/wiki" for another.
It would seem, if both apps could be persuaded to use the path of "/", the Java session could be shared and the auth information with it...
