How can I use OAuth between JIRA and AWS Lambda? Edited


I wish to use a lambda function in AWS to create issues in JIRA using the jira-python sdk. I want to authenticate with OAuth, but need some help getting going. 

Basically, I am unsure of what to put as my application url in JIRA's "Application Links"

Do I need to build a custom application in AWS?

Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks!

You do not need to build a custom application in AWS for this to work, and as per Mibex Software's nice walk through on How to use OAuth with Atlassian products you can "just use any application URL"- their example is based on Bamboo, but applies to JIRA as well:

While Atlassian’s cloud solutions like Bitbucket Cloud make it very easy to use OAuth, the behind-the-firewall editions of Atlassian products like Bamboo Server make this significantly harder — yet not impossible. In this blog post, we will show you how you can access Bamboo’s REST API with OAuth1. To achieve this, we’ll make use of application links. Although we have chosen Bamboo here, the basic procedure is the same for JIRA, Confluence and Bitbucket Server.
