A 3rd party is getting a ‘Forbidden (403) error when they try to connect to our Jira instance using the Jira API. They receive the following GET request:
curl --request GET \
--url 'https://subcom-gtsc.atlassian.net/rest/api/3/field' \
--user 'email@example.com:our_token' \
--header 'Accept: application/json'
This user is set up as a customer and therefore is not using up a license. They did not create an account, but they set up a token. The user requested a new token to see whether the token was the reason they kept getting "Forbidden (403)" error messages when trying to connect to our Jira instance. Using the new token to connect to the API returned the same error, so they revoked the new token. Then they thought I may need to clear all tokens in case there was some obscure issue. So, they revoked all token's MAP had and created a new one. Using this new token results in the same error. Therefore, they are claiming this is NOT a token issue.
The user had tried this a month ago and it was working. They even tested this out on their own Jira instance and it worked.
What could have caused this on my Jira instance? Do I need to whitelist their IP Address in the Jira API?
@Fahad AkhtarIf I understand your problem correctly, the issue is caused by the requesting party not being a Jira user. They are a customer, and have no API access.
That means you need to set them up as a full user account.
