Identity Federation for AWS 2.0 Release Notes


15 August 2014

The Utoolity team is pleased to present Identity Federation for AWS 2.0 – this major release adds support for Atlassian Bamboo, adds system scoped AWS credentials for elevated API usage without an active user session, and upgrades the API to version v2 to support secure configuration migration across instances/installations.



Support for Atlassian Bamboo

Use Identity Federation for AWS in Atlassian Bamboo to gain the following benefits:

Cross Product Support

Identity Federation for AWS aims to be a cross product solution and currently supports Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket, and Bamboo (see the Identity Federation for AWS Compatibility Notes for details) - please don't hesitate to get in touch, if you are interested in support for other Atlassian products, we are eager to learn more about your use case and adjusting our respective roadmap accordingly.

  • (info) The Confluence and Bitbucket editions of Identity Federation for AWS have been retired for technical reasons – learn about alternatives.

Dedicated Add-ons per Application

Bamboo and JIRA are each supported via a new dedicated add-on per Atlassian application due to Marketplace restrictions for cross-product add-ons:

  • the former JIRA only add-on will be archived, but can technically be used in parallel to ease migrating to the new version (minor usability issues apply)

  • the add-ons operate independent right now, i.e. credentials need to be managed separately for each and duplicated if desired - cross-product usage via application links is on our mid-term roadmap

System scoped AWS credentials

An AWS connector can now be denoted as System scoped and then used from elevated code (e.g. within another add-on) without an active user session to allow usage within Atlassian Bamboo's Tasks for example, as facilitated by Tasks for AWS.


The API has been upgraded to Globally Unique Identifier (GUID) based IDs to support secure configuration migration across instances and installations (refer to the Developer Guide for details).
