I have seen many discussion around this area, but nothing seems to be concrete.
Issue here is that once customer goes for SSO authentication they would never want their users to keep maintain their passwords with in JIRA, that means white listing REST API while SAML sso in place is not an option.
While i was going through a bit on documentation found https://developer.atlassian.com/server/jira/platform/oauth/
oAuth , JIRA recommended way to authenticate REST Api's however i would like to confirm if this works for all different ways JIRA allows SSO integrations , whether its JIRA Supported (SAML) or non supported ex. through Seraph plugin.
Please share your experience if anyone has gone with oAuth yet.
