Require single sign-on for user login

Users can either log in with their Microsoft or Atlassian accounts. We recommend that users log in with your Microsoft account through SAML single sign-on. SAML single sign-on is easy to use and more secure from a user perspective, as users only need to remember one set of user credentials.

And it’s easier for you to enforce identity-related security controls at scale. You can secure large groups of users. Before you set up SAML single sign-on, you must complete a sync to claim your domains.
