Step-by-Step Guides

Based on your user provisioning model, pick one of the following step-by-step guides.

Which Step-by-Step Guide Should You Pick?

Depending on your Atlassian product, you can choose from different user provisioning models.

In general, with JumpCloud we support the following ways for user provisioning:

  1. Just In Time Provisioning allows you to create and update users on-the-fly when they log in. See our detailed article for JIT.
  2. LDAP synchronization from Active Directory. If your instance is still synchronized to your Active Directory via LDAP, you can continue to do so. Please follow the "Manual User Management" Guide in this scenario.
  3. For Manual User Management, the administrator has to create and update users on JumpCloud and your Atlassian product by hand.
    We do not recommend it. See our article for Manual User Management.

Pro's and Con's

Just In Time Provisioning


  • Creates & Updates users based on information in the SAML Response during Login
  • Users are only created on their first Login
  • Users & Groups are updated only during SAML authentication
  • Users cannot be marked disabled (as JumpCloud will not complete the Authentication for a deleted/disabled User)
Manual User ManagementHigh

  • Here no sync happens
  • Needs manual maintenance of 2 User bases (or is done via custom developments)
