Add identity providers to connect users

You can connect an identity provider when you subscribe to Atlassian Access. Read more about how to start with Atlassian Access.

You can connect multiple identity providers when you subscribe to an Enterprise plan. Read more about the Enterprise plan.

Multiple identity providers are only available through an early access program. If you’re not participating in the program, you can still connect to one identity provider.

If you subscribe to an Enterprise plan, you can use multiple identity providers starting June 30, 2022.


Admins use identity providers to manage digital user identities, provide authentication services, and provision users to Atlassian products. Multiple identity providers give admins the flexibility to manage complex business, regulatory, or security requirements.

When admins connect one or more identity providers, they’re able to:

  • manage identity provider directories

  • provision and sync users and groups

  • set user authentication policies

This allows admins the flexibility to automate user management and implement security controls in their Atlassian organization.
