Identity Federation for AWS 1.0 Release Notes


20 May 2013

The Utoolity team is delighted to present Identity Federation for AWS 1.0 – this initial release introduces AWS Connector management, single sign-on (SSO) to the AWS Management Console and a REST API for temporary AWS security credentials.



AWS Connector management

Add long-term AWS security credentials (IAM users) once and configure access to AWS Resources for Atlassian groups with temporary AWS security credentials and fine grained control via IAM Policies thereafter.

Single sign-on (SSO) to the AWS Management Console

Access AWS Resources directly via menu links and/or a configurable AWS Management Console Login gadget.

REST API for temporary AWS Credentials

Expose AWS Connectors to requesting users with sufficient permissions and allow retrieval of temporary AWS credentials based on such a connector.


This release addresses the following issues:

  • Stories

    • IFAWS-95 - As a user, I want federated AWS access in JIRA

    • IFAWS-75 - As a user, I want a AWS Management Console SSO gadget so that I can configure custom dashboards

    • IFAWS-13 - As a user, I want access to the AWS Management Console via SSO so that I don't need to login separately

    • IFAWS-11 - As an administrator, I want to map IAM policies to Crowd entities so that I can control access to AWS

    • IFAWS-10 - As a developer, I want an API for accessing AWS with preconfigured credentials so that I can embed AWS functionality in my add-ons
