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?

You could probably use OAuth to authenticate as it will require an Application Link and will do ok with your SSO. For more details, take a look at https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/JIRA+REST+API+Example+-+OAuth+authentication
