Linear integration

ConductorOne provides identity governance and just-in-time provisioning for Linear. Integrate your Linear instance with ConductorOne to run user access reviews (UARs) and enable just-in-time access requests.


Linear provides secure access to private resources for distributed workforces under a zero trust networking model.


โœ… General availability. The Linear integration is available to all ConductorOne users.


  • Sync user identities from Linear to ConductorOne
  • Resources supported:
    • Linear orgs
    • Linear teams

Set up the Linear integration

A user with the Super Administrator role in ConductorOne must perform this task.

  1. In ConductorOne, open Admin and click Integrations > Linear.

  2. If this is your first Linear integration, the integration form opens automatically. Otherwise, click Add connector.

  3. Choose whether to add the new Linear connector to an existing application (and select the app of your choice) or to create a new application.

    Do you SSO into Linear using your identity provider (IdP)? If so, make sure to add the connector to the Linear app that was created automatically when you integrated your IdP with ConductorOne, rather than creating a new app.

  1. Set the integration owner for this connector. You can manage the integration yourself, or choose someone else from the list of ConductorOne users. Setting multiple integration owners is allowed.

    A Linear integration owner must have the following permissions:

    • Integration Administrator or Super Administrator role in ConductorOne
  1. Click Create and add details.

Next steps

  • If you are the integration owner, proceed to Integrate your Linear instance for instructions on integrating Linear with ConductorOne.

  • If someone else is the integration owner, ConductorOne will notify them by email that their help is needed to complete the integration.

  2. In the list of connectors, locate and click on the name of the connector with the Not connected label.

  3. Find the Settings area of the page and click Edit.
