In My Locally set up Jira server
My Current local URL=http://localhost:8080/secure/Dashboard.jspa
I am accessing Rest API with basic auth by username and password(plain).
(I don't know my API token)
My cloud URL = https://prohance.atlassian.net/secure/Dashboard.jspa
Here I am accessing Rest API with basic auth by username and password(plain).
(Here i know my API token from id.atlassian.com)
I am able to access Rest API by both
a. Username and Plain Password
b. Username and API token
As i read Plain Password over basic auth is deprecated. So asking this.
My Question is
1. How to get API token in local Jira Server.
2. What will be the URL in my locally installed Jira Server for going to the page id.atlassian.com given in below image
Appreciate your Quick response.
It is not possible to generate API tokens in Jira Server.
Let me know if you have any questions.
Which product are you referring to that had basic auth deprecated? The original post was regarding plain passwords being sent over basic authentication, but not basic being deprecated entirely.
At this time it's only possible to generate an API token on our Cloud apps. We do not have plans in our upcoming roadmap to implement the token system in Server. You're welcome to vote on the request above to help show the team that there is an interest in this feature.
I'm not able to speculate on what would happen if this were to occur. However, I do not foresee this happening since basic authentication is still possible in Cloud apps.
If you wish to authenticate Jira Server API, our recommended usage of Basic Authentication is outlined from our developer site.
Wow this seems like a significant oversight :(
This essentially forces the user to
@Shannon Spaniol https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/jira/platform/deprecation-notice-basic-auth-and-cookie-based-auth/ talks about deprecating basic auth in Cloud. I'm on Jira & Confluence server editions.
Thank you for pointing that out to me! I hadn't heard this and I'm not on the developer site nearly enough so I wasn't aware of the changes. I've submitted your concern now via the feature request I sent you earlier.
I created one as well for Confluence just now:
Please also vote on that and comment with your feedback. It will greatly help us.
@Rob Pointer, if you could do the same, by providing your feedback directly on the feature request. The development team will be able to see your feedback right from the feature request and address any concerns with the implementation of such a feature.
I voted for the two tickets, would it also be possible to create a ticket for bamboo?
I'm using server version of Bamboo, Jira, Bitbucket and Confluence, and having some consistency on the API would be of great help.
Currently only Bitbucket server has the token.
I’m a designer on the Jira team. For a long time, I’ve fielded questions from other designers about how they should be using Jira Software with their design team. I’ve also heard feedback from other ...
