What is involved in setting up an application link to a non-Atlassian application?

We have a home-made application implemented in Django. The application, among other things, allows users to view JIRA issues. We want that to be done using the identity of the user so that access is properly authorized according to JIRA permissions.

It seems that setting up an application link between the apps would be the way to go so that JIRA would trust the home-made app to have authenticated the user.

Is this feasible?

You will have to study on creating an add-on that can be uploaded in JIRA so that your application can "integrate" with it natively.

Other than that, if you just need authentication using JIRA for your application, take a look at Crowd.
