Atlassian Crowd

For smaller companies Atlassian crowd is great, however, we grew to a size where we were getting rate limited so we needed to scale up. What we ended up migrating to was the non-cloud solutions for Atlassian products. This allowed us to hit our scale without being rate limited. However, at a smaller scale, this product would work great.

Pros

Atlassian Crowd

  • The ability to Govern Group Permissions for synchronizing users into Crowd, keeping only the users you want in Crowd and keeping unwanted access out. Ability to define authentication permissions and having automated group definitions for new users.
  • Integration into our existing systems, as it becomes merely an extension rather than a separate entity. It works seamlessly with almost all of our systems.
  • Always up to date with compliance and security requirements of the organization. The ability to audit is very key. It's surprising how many systems don't have a fully supportive auditing system.

Cons

Atlassian Crowd

  • We did not get the speed that we needed vs. hosting our own local atlassian product

  • I didn't like the process for installing extensions

Alternatives Considered

Atlassian Crowd

In most ways, I preferred Duo Security as it offered a better 2-factor authentication method, and Crowd is definitely better than just having to rely on Active Directory. I have always been of the mind to have a centralized server that sits between your active directory (azure or on premise) and the systems that you integrate it with via LDAP or similar protocols. It would surprise a lot of people to see how many organizations do not secure their active directory or LDAP connections

Return on Investment

Atlassian Crowd

  • We ended up moving off of it pretty quickly
  • It helped us realize that we needed to host our own solution
  • The product itself was functional but it just didn't suit our scaling needs.
