Connect an identity provider

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.

Connect your identity provider to your Atlassian organization by configuring user provisioning and user authentication. You can choose to configure both user authentication and provisioning or to configure only one. It doesn’t matter the order you configure them in.

  • If you only set up user provisioning then your users can’t log in with single sign-on.

  • If you only set up single sign-on then you’re unable to deactivate users from your identity provider.

To connect an identity provider using SAML single sign-on:

  1. Go to admin.atlassian.com. Select your organization if you have more than one.

  2. Select Security > Identity providers.

  3. Select Directory.

  4. Select set up SAML single sign-on.

  5. If you provision users with SAML Just-In-Time, select domains to link to the Directory.

  6. Save your SAML configuration.
