Jira Rest API Single Sign On Authentication

I am trying to create/search an issue through rest api (in C#). The intranet we are using have a single sign on functionality. So when I surf through browser, it is smart enough to fetch the latest session id and authenticate to the SSO login. I am stuck with the SSO login via api. Any idea on how to overcome or bypass the SSO login through api code?

Thanks in advance.

Normally you would configure SSO for JIRA to ignore REST URLs - this would be somewhere in the config parameters of our SSO filter

Hi Ed,

Thank you for your reply. I have a question. What do you mean by "our SSO filter". My thinking is, in my intranet setting, I have to add ignore exception for JIRA REST url. SSO is not related to JIRA, right?
