How do I setup oauth to authenticate python tool?

Edward Du I'm New Here Oct 23, 2017

I was trying to do a python tool to analyze some of the fields for each issue on jira cloud.

first i was using basic_auth with my username and password.

and it works just fine, but now i am going to let other user using this tool, so i am searching how to setup an oauth.

I am getting setup a application link to get the keys and tokens that i need for oauth, but my tool is just running locally, it doesn't have a actual server link. 

How do i get access_token and consumer_key from jira cloud?
