API Connectors

API connectors give you the ability to sync users from Azure AD, Google GSuite or Okta into a separate Atlassian user directory. The Atlassian application is automatically kept in sync whenever a new user is created, updated, deactivated or deleted in the cloud user repository.

The synchronization itself is done using the identity provider’s proprietary user management APIs. From the Atlassian administrator’s point of view, it’s otherwise no different from defining a Crowd or LDAP directory.
