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?
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.
