Jira Align and Authentication Methods

Jira Align Supports The Following Authentication Methods:

  • Basic Auth

  • OAuth 1.0a

Basic Auth

  • The username and password are combined and Base64 encoded and placed in the header.

  • Basic Auth is used in conjunction with HTTPS per recommendation of RFC 7617 and Jira Align Security Policies. The data is encrypted in transit to the TLS termination endpoint via TLS 1.2 ECDHE ciphers.


1A) Jira Service Account Username will be entered into the Jira Username field and Jira Service Account Password goes in the API Token/Jira Password field.


1B) For API Token Based Proxies that accept Basic Auth, you can enter any username in the Jira Username field and the Proxy’s API Token in the API Token/Jira Password field.

Jira Align Connector Setup – Basic Auth:


OAuth 1.0a

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. 

The OAuth 1.0a “3 Steps”

  1. Create a request for Jira Align to obtain a request token.

  2. Have the user authenticate, and send Jira Align a request token.

  3. Convert the request token into a usable user access token.


See this article for more info: Jira REST API Example OAuth Authentication

Jira Align Connector Setup – OAuth 1.0a:

Admin > Connectors > Jira Settings > Jira Connectors


1) OAuth Consumer Key

This field can be filled in with any descriptive label. Spaces and symbols will cause issues during setup so do not use these.

2) OAuth Public Key

This is generated by Jira Align and used as part of the OAuth 3 Step Setup Process.


Additional Materials

For specific step-by-step instructions of setting up OAuth 1.0a in both Jira Align and Jira Software, please see 1 of the 2 following articles:
