JIRA and JForums are j2ee based products. So I am pre-assuming single signon is possible b/w these two products or any other j2ee product.
I am surprised to see, there is NO SSO b/w jforums.net/forums and jforums.net/JIRA.
If user create a account for forums, he should be automatically registered for JIRA or while registering, he should be given option to link both products under same credentials.
Is it something possible or being done? [originally posted on jforum.net by ajainy]

Technically, this would seem possible. As to why it's not been implimented, Raphael will have to give the definitive answer, but three possible issues come to mind:
First, the cobbler's children principal... we go without "shoes" because the people who have access to the system and could develop this are busy improving Jforum in general and not in this specific instance.
Second, the jforum.net site and jira site may be separated in some form. I know that dev.java.net is providing some of the jforum site services. Jira may be part of that and is "black boxed" by them in a way that would make integration difficult.
Third, Jira is a commercial product that can be used for free by some people. They may not supply the details needed to do automatic registration/SSO.
Just some educated guesses on my part which may be totally wrong. [originally posted on jforum.net by monroe]
