What is Atlassian Access?

Atlassian Access has been part of Atlassian Security since 2018, and is an additional subscription for your Atlassian Cloud products to provide enhanced security. Single Sign-Ons, Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) or Automated User Provisioning (SCIM) are among the benefits of Atlassian Access.

What Atlassian Access can do

Atlassian Access subscription gives your team of any size a centralized view to manage and monitor your Cloud products. Billing items as well as user management of all (email) domains are centralized in one place.

Many customers use Atlassian Access because it is the only product that can connect to your own identity provider like Azure AD. The ease with which admins can customize multiple authentication policies saves time and minimizes the risk for errors due to manual processes.

Atlassian Access is available for these Cloud products

  • Jira Software
  • Jira Work Management
  • Jira Service Management
  • Confluence
  • Bitbucket
  • Trello
  • Statuspage
