    More details

    Increase the use and value of your JIRA by replacing manual username/password login with automatic Kerberos authentication. Our user friendly UI guides you in setting up and configuring Kerberos in your domain. There is no need to modify your JIRA 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
    • JIRA Service Desk supported. Customers can log into the Customer Portal.
    • Supports multi-key and multi-domain key tabs
    • Supports non-standard LDAP username attributes
    • Preemptive authentication support

    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

    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.

    Excellent plugin. The assistance from Kantega is outstanding as well. They were very helpful with getting our keytab in order.

    Works perfectly. Much better solution than IIS based authentication with seraph connectors.

    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?

    For JIRA Server 7.0 or later, the add-on tier should match the maximum tier of the licensed JIRA applications on your instance. For example, if you're running JIRA Software (50 users) and JIRA Service Desk (10 agents) on the same instance, you should purchase the 50-user tier for add-ons.

    For versions of JIRA Server prior to 7.0, the add-on tier should match the licensed user tier for JIRA. Even if fewer users want to use the add-on than your JIRA license, the two licenses should match exactly.

    Note: While this add-on has features specific to JIRA Service Desk, the add-on is technically available across the whole JIRA instance. Therefore the above guidelines for the license tier still apply.

    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.
