Crowd allows you to have different usernames in different applications. These different usernames are called 'aliases'. Your Crowd administrator can manage your aliases for the applications you are authorized to access.
- When you log in to Crowd itself, you must use your primary username i.e. the one registered in Crowd.
- If you choose to log in to another Crowd-connected application directly, such as Confluence or JIRA, instead of logging in via Crowd, then you must log in using the alias registered in that application (Confluence, JIRA, or whatever.)
- If SSO is enabled you will only need to log in or log out once, to Crowd or a Crowd-connected application. When you start another Crowd-connected application, you will be logged in automatically.
