    More details

    Increase the use and value of your Confluence by replacing manual username/password login with automatic Windows Domain Kerberos authentication. Our user friendly UI guides you in setting up and configuring Kerberos in your domain. There is no need to modify your Confluence installation. Automated tests help you detect and resolve common configuration problems.


    • IP white/black-listing lets you restrict Kerberos to only parts of your network
    • Falls back to normal username / password for clients which do not support Kerberos
    • Supports multi-key and multi-domain key tabs
    • Supports non-standard LDAP username attributes
    • Supports preemptive authentication

    Documentation, troubleshooting tips and browser configuration guide is available at https://docs.kantega.no/

    We have seen most Kerberos problems before and we are always happy to help you get across any hurdles on your way to production. Contact us at atlassian.support@kantega.no

    We had this plugin installed for a year. Easy setup and no issues with this plugin. Recommended.

    I'll add our voice to the list of users who think this add-on (both the JIRA and Confluence versions) are great. They were pretty easy to set up, and the one time we had a question, it was addressed very quickly. We've been using this plugin for a couple of years now.

    The whole team really loves the convenience of SSO in Confluence. It has increased productivity and has become indispensable.Great add-on!

    Thanks Rocky! Every enterprise product should have single sign-on. We have several reports that not only is the productivity increased, but also the usage.

    I am on a trial basis for Confluence and so far it's been an easy setup. Login works but only if the user account is 1st created. I cannot seem to find any documentation on how to auto add users. Is this a Plugin feature or if this a confluence configuration issue. Once the account was created, works flawlessly.

    Glen. Thank you for your feedback! As of version 1.49 users no longer have to log in the first time. With this change in place, logging in with our plugin should have the same behavior as logging in with user name / passwords.

    This addon runs perfectly without any hiccups. Managed to get rid of our old IIS based auth solution and can now authenticate users directly in Confluence

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does server add-on pricing work?

    Server products and add-ons are hosted on your servers. Licenses are perpetual and the purchase price include 12 months of maintenance (support and version updates).

    You can renew maintenance after 12 months at 50% of the current purchase price. You can upgrade the tier of your host product and add-on licenses at any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula (view example).

    If add-on pricing changes after your initial purchase, there's a 60-day grandfathering period during which you can renew based on the old pricing.

    How do I determine my server pricing tier?

    The add-on tier should match the licensed user tier of the Atlassian host application. For example, if you have a Confluence Server license for 25 users, you should purchase the 25-user tier for add-ons. Even if fewer users want to use the add-on than your host application license, the two licenses should match exactly.

    Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses?

    For server add-ons, purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host application. Server add-ons are always free for community and open-source licenses. Cloud add-ons do not have discounted or free licenses.

    For more details about qualifying for special licenses, see here.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For server add-ons, you can extend your add-on trial up to 5 times - in other words, for up to six months. Extend your trial by generating a new evaluation license key from Atlassian Marketplace. Click Try it free and you'll be directed to generate a new license. Paste this license key into the add-on listing in UPM from your Atlassian host application, and you're all set.

    How can I buy add-ons for my legacy JIRA Server or Confluence Server license?

    If you own a legacy JIRA Server Unlimited (100+ users) or Confluence Server Unlimited (2000+ users) license purchased in 2012 or earlier, legacy add-on pricing is no longer available. You have two options for add-on purchasing:

    • Purchase the add-on at the non-legacy Unlimited (10000+ users) tier.
    • Renew your JIRA or Confluence license at a non-legacy tier, then purchase the add-on at the same tier.
