I want to consume the JIRA REST API from a java desktop application I am developing and to do so I keep finding where it is necessary to create an application link. However, since this is a desktop app, I do not have a URL to enter so it is not allowing me to create the app link. How can I authenticate from my java application using oauth if I cannot create an application link?
You shouldn't need to create an application link in order make API Requests to your Cloud (previous OnDemand) instance.
Your desktop application can perform any kind of API Requests to your JIRA without having an application link.
Here's some information on how to use the REST API to make JIRA content requests.
Hope it helps! Let us know if you face any problems!
