JIRA API authentication with Okta

I'm using SAML (Okta) to authenticate with an on-prem JIRA instance. One of my users would like to access the API, but I'm unsure how he would do so without a standard username and password.

I am guessing here, but what if they authed against Okta first and received a cookie, and then used that cookie to auth against JIRA's api?

Any feedback here?

Im having the same issue. When logging into Okta I get a session token back. How do I use this to then access the confluence/jira api ? 

When setting up okta integration with confluence/jira the current authentication method which is basic auth is disabled.
