How to create an app password for Jira

I need to do Jira ntegration with Sensu. Since 2FA enabled, default integration is not working. So I need a app password.

You'll need to explain what you mean by an "app password", as Jira doesn't have one and relies on user accounts for access.

Using an app password I should be able to login to Jira using my username and 16 digit app password. 

You'll need to look at the documentation for whatever you've used to enable 2 factor authentication on Jira.

Since 2FA enabled for Jira access, our monitoring application is not able to create Jira tcikets based on alerts. To bypass 2FA, we need a App password.

This does not answer the question.

What are you expecting from an "app password", when Jira is built on users?
