Jira API integration

I am building a service that will integrate with the Jira API, which my company uses.  I am planning to use basic authentication since this is an internal service and I have a Jira account with all the permissions needed.  To use basic I created an Atlassian account to create a token.  I base 64 encoded the user:token and am passing it in the header 'Authorization:Basic [encoded user:token]".

I get response:

"You do not have the permission to see the specified issue.",    "Login Required"

I am guessing the Atlassian account is not tied to the Jira account which has the permissions.  How do I make that connection between the two accounts? 

Thanks in advance.

Hi @todd bastress ,

Welcome to the community. 

You will have to use your existing account or you have to grant your new account the permissions that it needs. There is, as far as I know, no way to connect two accounts. 

Thank you for the reply.  Turns out that my company is using the server version and not cloud, so I needed to use server API authentication methods.

You're welcome. 

If you need more help feel free to ask.
