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.
