OAuth Consumer for atlassian-hosted Jira

John Gale I'm New Here Aug 31, 2017

I'm hoping to create a custom script (Python) to automatically modify some fields within Jira tickets.  Some examples online suggest that in some cases, you can create incoming-only application links with RSA keys which would enable the script to modify Jira info:


However, in our instance of Jira, which is hosted on atlassian.net, I only see "enter the URL of the application you want to link to" and no way to set one-way links.  Is this feature disabled for atlassian-hosted applications?

Hi John,

The documentation for Oauth for JIRA Cloud is available at below url (and it is slightly different than the one for JIRA Server):


Kindly review above page and let me know if it helps.

That's perfect, thanks for both the documentation and the clarification on JIRA Cloud vs JIRA Server.

You are very welcome John! :)

Can you kindly accept the solution is this was helpful?
