Jira local server captcha authentication bypass with Python API connection

Hello, I would like to know if there a way to bypass local Jira server captcha authentication with my Python API script using basic authentication (username/password)? The captcha feature has to be enabled for secure authentication. But I have to use the API script for ticket update automation task. Please advise as my script connection cannot be authenticated once the captcha is in enabled. Thanks for help.

hi @Terence Bok, i have to do the same thing and i am encountering the same problem. did you find a solution for this since 2020? 

thank you in advance.

Two options / workarounds

1) Let your script inform the user that the captcha has been set

2) Make use of encryption keys (by setting up an application link) to perform actions in Jira instead. These are not hindered by captcha's (and don't take up another user license). But can take some extra time to setup but is safer to use as well.
