We used Atlassian Crowd as our primary ticketing system for our production level product. We have tickets filled in that were filed by customers, our internal customers, our QA teams, and our developers. We used these tickets to develop a backlog of bug fixes and new improvements that our dev team can prioritize.
  • It is very easy for users to create tickets
  • Standing up Atlassian crowd is a breeze
  • Not having to manage any hardware infrastructure is great
  • We did not get the speed that we needed vs. hosting our own local Atlassian product
  • Configuring accounts could have been easier
  • I didn't like the process for installing extensions
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.

Atlassian Crowd Review: "Crowd - An extension to Active Directory"

Atlassian Crowd is currently being utilized as a Single Sign-On for departments that utilize the other Atlassian software applications including JIRA, Confluence, HipChat and Core.
We use it as an extension to our existing sign-on directories including Active Directory as well as our other systems and utilities. We use it to help unify credentials to ensure everyone can access the systems they need using one alias.
  • 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.
  • Some systems that are not crucial turned into more work than what was originally deemed necessary to successfully deploy Crowd.
  • Linux support was there as it was built mostly to support Windows based systems
  • Documentation was supported but most issues we had required us to contact Atlassian support.
Atlassian Crowd is great when you already use the Atlassian product suite such as JIRA Core, Service Desk, Confluence and Hip Chat. It works seamlessly and can also extend the functionality to work with all of the other tools such as Google Apps.

Atlassian Crowd is not necessarily useful when you may already have a single sign-on system such as Duo Security, RSA or SASS in place.
