Can I connect multiple users using OAuth and an Application Link on my Application

John Lutz I'm New Here Dec 08, 2021


This is my first time dealing with Authentication, especially Jira/Atlassian authentication, I am trying to make an internal app that we can use to take down information from the api and chart it using specific jira credentials each user has (ex: team A can take down only what team A has access to, team B the same, etc). I thought OAuth and an Application Link is perfect for this, I have it setup using Passport JS Strategy  here: with my own generated RSA private key, with the public key being set in the application link as it suggested here : (Under the Configure Jira section). When trying to achieve another user to go about linking, it requires the private key I generated myself, and other people on their own machines can't get it to work with their own RSA private keys. Is there a way we can have this work so we don't have to pass around one private key generated by an admin and have multiple users access the REST API using OAuth 1.0 and this method?


(I also wonder how this works when deploying our application for internal use)



Thank you so much for any help on this!! (Explanation would be amazing too!)
