How do I call JIRA rest API from a java web application

We have a existing dashboard and wanted to integrate the JIRA issues too in that. For that we need to call JIRA rest APIs and thus require a CORS request or a local server which gives us the JSON result set. The issue is that our JIRA server uses a SSO server to authenticate users. How do I implement this requirement using JIRA ResT APIs?
