Hey @raman sharma ,

If I understand you correctly, you're using AWS's managed Active Directory service, which effectively allows you to run an on-premises AD environment in AWS infrastructure.

In this case, it's effectively equivalent to running Active Directory on local hardware. Active Directory doesn't support the authentication and directory sync protocols that most SaaS offerings (including Atlassian's) use.

AWS recommends using Azure AD Connect to sync users from AWS managed AD to Azure AD, and then configuring SSO for Azure AD using that. Here are the relevant docs:

I hope that helps get you started!
