Authenticating Jira Cloud from External system

Hi,

I`m building a system that should integrate with JIRA (cloud version, xxx.jira.com). 

Basically I need to log in users in the JIRA cloud through my app.

A basic example would be a client clicking on a link that opens JIRA already authenticated.

How can it be achieved?

Thank you

Hi raivil,

You can do it via JIRA REST API /rest/auth/1/session: https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/latest/#d2e3737

Acquire JSESSION and make sure it's passed with "clicking on a link that opens JIRA".
