Enable Modern Authentication in Jira cloud

We need to enable Modern Authentication since Basic auth will be disabled from Microsoft October 1st. 

To enable OAuth 2 in Jira the documentation says this:

  1. Go to Jira administration > System > OAuth 2.0.
  2. Click Add new integration.
  3. Select your Service provider.
  4. Enter your integration's name.
  5. For Google and Microsoft, we will auto-fill the authorization and the token endpoint data.

Problem is that we can't find OAuth 2.0 under settings. We are using Atlassian Cloud. Is the settings menu here different then Atlassian datacenter/server?

Hi @Nico 

Modern authentication for logging in? For sending emails?

Hi @Alex Koxaras 

To receive mail. When mail is received a task is automatically created. We have implemented that today, but with basic authentication.

Trying add a new mail server:

  • Go to cog > System > Incoming Mail
  • Add new mail server
  • Fill in all fields and choose Microsoft from the dropdown
  • You will be prompt to login to microsoft
  • After logging in successful, the mail server will have an Microsoft OAuth  authentication


Let me know if that what you were looking for.

Thanks @Alex Koxaras Now we have OAuth authentication.
