Can you create a Jira app password like you can with bitbucket

For automation with bitbucket in the cloud you can create an app password as described here -

Is there a similar concept available with the cloud based Jira that would allow an app password to be created for Jira?

I've already looked at the account options and those present in Bitbucket don't appear to be present in Jira.

I also tried to find a 3rd party solution in Marketplace but none of those results seemed appropriate.
