Jira Align Connector Setup – Basic Auth:
The OAuth 1.0a implementation for Jira Align is designed to setup this OAuth 1.0a Authentication between Jira Align and Jira Software. Jira Align will not utilize OAuth 1.0a in any other manner.
Create a request for Jira Align to obtain a request token.

Convert the request token into a usable user access token.
