Jira Cloud API Token Permissions (How to limit permissions) Edited

Hi Everyone,
We currently use JIRA Cloud  as our ticket management/issue tracking system. We have multiple projects boards setup in our Jira Instance.

We are looking integrate JIRA into our project management tool to pull in tasks from one of our projects in JIRA. 

What is the best way of limiting the API token's access to just one project? 

From my understanding, Jira API Token's are limited to the permissions set on the user profile. For instance, if a user profile is given access to particular project, the API token generated from that account will only be able to access the projects/resources associated to that account. Is this the correct assumption?

Hi @Raunak_ 

I feel as if you've answered your own question :-)

Yes, the token only allows access to whatever that user has access to in Jira, so if you want a token that can only access 1 project, ensure that the user can only access that 1 project.
