Hi, I'm trying to make a rest call to query our JIRA for release notes. I have it working with basic authentication. However, I'm reading all over your documentation that basic is deprecated. However, most of the documention I can find is about basic authentication.
So, I had our IT department give me the same key that another app is using; and I can't tell how that translates to JIRA.
Is this oAuth?
app password: <some name>
xxxxxxxxx -- a password or something
Help? I'm just trying to find the right direction.
OK, I found their is a difference between an API Token and API Key. So I can use the API Key and not get the "basic auth with username/password is deprecated" message.
When I run that through Postman I can see the authorization header generated makes a hash or something out of the username and api key; that is working for my purposes if I pass it to my application to use the REST API.
Next question, is this the right way to do it? Will that hash (or whatever it is) remain valid for the life of the API key?
