Impersonate a user to make API calls

Is there a way to make API calls on behalf of another user without generating a API key for each an every user in my Jira environment?

Currently I am using the Jira Cloud platform API to create issues through my own full stack application (angular & .NET) with the API. I am also using Azure AD to authenticate users on my application, once access is granted we (currently) manually register new users in Jira with their Microsoft accounts. Which until now works like it is intended, the only problem I am facing now is that whenever I want to create an issue it sets the creator of that issue to the user who generated the API access key. The creator should be the user that is currently signed in on my application.

I discovered that for Jira Service Desk API there was a parameter you could add to a request like so:

"raiseOnBehalfOf": "",

Which I assume would sets the creator of an instance to that user and not to the user who generated the API access key.

Suggestions or solutions will be greatly appreciated.
