This manual is purposed for IT professional who has basic knowledge of administrating Windows Active Directory and Atlassian Confluence Enterprise Wiki. Please notice also that if the deployment with guidance of this manual seems to be too difficult or your organisation lack skills required for deployment you are able to get Enterprise version of authenticator with more detailed manual or you are able to get the deployment as professional service from Polar Shift Ltd.
Confluence single sign-on extension allows Confluence authentication to take place transparently like native Windows services in a Windows Domain. After the user has logged into their workstation or laptop they do not need to enter a username and password to login to Confluence anymore. The Wiki is available with the user's own credentials without any interaction from the user.
It is highly advisable to use https for the authentication so these instructions are based on using https.
There are three major steps in the deployment process: Active Directory, Browser and Confluence preparation. Please check also latest Release Notes.
