We want to implement single sign on for JIRA means when once user has logged into the computer using his/her windows domain login/password and clicks on JIRA icon he/she will directly jump to JIRA dashboard skipping the login screen.

Does JIRA 5.0.6 has any built in supports to this requirement? or CROWD is the solution to this requirement? and How? please advice.

Hi Mnaeem,

For an SSO solution, the only option is to integrate Crowd into your application stack because JIRA doesn't provide that functionality alone, but Crowd will still expect you to authenticate once with it, (or another connected application), as I don't believe that there is any out of the box solution to authenticate Crowd with the signon from a desktop machine. We do have Atlassian Experts who can assist you in developing this kind of solution, or if you have an Active Directory and a knowledgeable admin then they might be able to configure the computer login as authentication for the AD, at which point you would have the solution because Crowd would check with the AD and log the user in but this is something that you would need to configure in the AD rather than in Crowd. However, you can read about the possibilities of SSO with Crowd in our documentation on the subject: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CROWD/Overview+of+SSO

All the best,

Our NTLM Authenticators for Jira and Confluence support the latest versions of both applications.

TechTime Initiative Group, an Atlassian Expert in New Zealand has been providing a solution to do NTLM authentication (a.k.a auto-login or SSO in Windows environment) with Confluence and Jira for over 5 years.

We have over 40 customers successfully using this solution in New Zealand, Australia, Switzerland, Finland, Norway, Sweeden, France, Germany, Netherlands, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Turkey, Russia, Latvia, the UK and the USA both in NTLMv2 and NTLMv1 environments.

The NTLM Authenticator is delivered as a jar file and instructions how to deploy it to Atlassian Jira and/or Confluence to work in conjunction with IOPlex Jespa to perform NLTM authentication in Windows environment.

The cost is one-off NZ$150 (plus fees for Jespa license payable to IOPlex). We do sell bundles that include IOPlex Jespa license.

If you need it, the trial version is available from our TurningRight website.
