Why do I have to login twice since creating an atlassian account

Ever since creating an atalassian account (which I was begged to do on every login for a few month before that), now I have to login twice when accessing

The first login is for atlassian, which forwards to a second login for trello.

I thought it might be bug and will be ironed out soon. But it persists.

Of course trello works as it should, but the accumulated time for a second pointless(?) login seems an odd design choice.

Can I avoide the second login on

Or, alternatively, can I unlink the atlassian account to my trello account? So far I only got a worsened user experience with it. 

Any pointers are welcome.

Hi @Flo Jo 

   Why you do not go directly to your trello account, it will obviously ask for your credentials.?

   If, as you say, you have it linked to your Atlassian account, you will enter without problems and you will avoid the previous step.

   Go directly to and login


Please take a look at the first part of this video.

As you can see, from a signed-out state, I click on my bookmark to my board, and get the Trello sign-in form. Once I have entered my Trello email and password, I am redirected to the Atlassian sign-in form, prefilled with the same email address, but in which I have to enter another password (my Atlassian password). Hence I have to log in twice.

In the second part of the video, I show how you can bookmark the link of the Atlassian sign-in form (the second sign-in step), and how it will eventually lead to my board after having to sign in at most once.

It doesn't feel like a proper fix though (rather a workaround), as this bookmark does not keep the proper favicon of the board. Also, that bookmarks goes through multiple hoops, even when logged in, which makes it slow.
