JIRA SOAP API - is impersonation possible?


We are using JIRA SOAP API, to integrate exernal app with JIRA. Currently we are using service account to connect using SOAP API. I have following questions regarding connection to JIRA

1. Is it possible to use Windows Integrated Authentication to connect to JIRA using SOAP, in this way I need not explicitly set UserId and Pwd to connect to JIRA.

2. Is it possible to impersnate user? Like if I connect using service account but for some methods I wanted to use logged in user's id. For example while creating a comment on JIRA issue currently it is created under service account, however I wanted to create under logged in user.

Neither of those are supported as far as I know. I'd recommend using REST instead of SOAP though
