I'm looking to build an internal helper app using the Jira REST API. Basically to automate/make easier some things that are a pain in Jira (WHy you can't have either fixVersions or Components globally I do not understand!)
The docs are quite against using cookie-based auth with the REST API. However, my requirements are that:
I don't really see why cookie-based isn't actually the most secure here? As I see it the options are
Is there something I'm missing, or are the docs just missing this use case when they recommend not using cookie-based?
Know about their current Jira session so they don't need to re-authenticate would be best of course, but if I want that I guess I need to bit the bullet and write a proper plugin, isntead of a quick, external, helper app :)
I'm probably going to go ahead and implement with cookies, just wondering what if anything I've msised here.
