I've managed to create an Application link for my server-side application, and run through the oAuth dance and get access tokens. This all works fine, and I can use the tokens using the REST API.
However, I've read elsewhere that the tokens have a limited lifetime (e.g. https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/332492) that can be seen in http://<JIRA_URL>/plugins/servlet/oauth/users/access-tokens. However, with my Cloud installation of JIRA, there is no expiry listed on this page - just the date the name of the app, date granted, 'Read and Write access' and a button to revoke.
How can I tell what the token lifetime is?
"You can revoke this access token at any time from your JIRA user account, otherwise, all access tokens expire after seven days."
This is from the documentation.
Let me know , if you guys have any useful information.
Using Atlassian Access, they are configurable.
1. After you log into Atlassian Access, from the top set of tabs, select security
2. from the left hand panel click on session duration
3. In the middle of the screen is a drop down that will allow you to select the length of time that you would like your session token to last for.
