A few months ago, I blogged about the acquisition of Authentisoft and their product IDX. Three months later, we’re happy to announce that IDX is now available as an Atlassian product, Crowd. Justen Stepka, co-founder at Authentisoft and lead developer on Crowd, blogged about it here, too.
User management is a problem that plagues just about every company and IT department. Through a simple web-based interface, Crowd allows you to manage all your users, connect all your user directories (LDAP, Active Directory, etc.), and provide single sign-on for all your web-based apps. Like Jira and Confluence, you can download and try Crowd for 30-days.
We are offering 30% off the product up until the 1.0 release which is going to be January 9th, 2007 (at which time we’ll do a more official announcement and press release). As with all Atlassian products you will get one year of upgrades and support included.
