What links should I be using to use Oauth with JIRA Software (cloud)?

This seems to be an obvious question but I have been unable to find the answer

All the documentation I have read points to localhost:8900 but I don't think that is right.

I have assumed that the links should be :


requestTokenUrl: "",

authorizeUrl: "",

accessTokenUrl: ""


When I call my Oauth plugin it simply comes back with a 404: Page not found error.

What am I missing?

What documentation are you following?  

I ask because you mention using localhost:8900 which is, as far as I know, never mentioned in the docs - 8900 is not a port any Atlassian software uses, and localhost is always going to be Server, never a Cloud system.

Hi Nic,

This is the page I am trying to use:

It is the example Python code downloaded from the site:


consumer_key = 'oauth-sample-consumer'

consumer_secret = 'dont_care'


request_token_url = 'http://localhost:8090/jira/plugins/servlet/oauth/request-token'

access_token_url = 'http://localhost:8090/jira/plugins/servlet/oauth/access-token'

authorize_url = 'http://localhost:8090/jira/plugins/servlet/oauth/authorize'


My problem is that I cannot find any definitive reference to the real URLs I should be using.

Ah, I see, sorry.  The sample code you've downloaded contains local links.

I think you need to run through - this tells you how to generate tokens from a Cloud system

Hi Nic,

Thank you for that documentation. I have followed that and I think I have got further but I seem to have fallen at what is hopefully the final hurdle.

As far as I can tell I have provided a valid scope.

I have set the following permissions:
