Add identity providers to connect users

You can connect an identity provider and configure single sign-on for your portal-only customers (Jira Service Management) when you subscribe to Atlassian Access. Read more about connecting an identity provider to customers.

Admins use identity providers to manage digital user identities, provide authentication services, and provision users to Atlassian products.

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.

Connecting multiple identity providers give admins the flexibility to manage complex business, regulatory, or security requirements. How many you can connect depends on your plan:

  • An Atlassian Access subscription allows you to connect one identity provider.

  • An Enterprise plan allows you to connect multiple identity providers. Atlassian Access is included with your Enterprise plan at no extra cost. Learn what's included in Cloud Enterprise plans
