OAUTH Impersonation issue with Application links

Hi All,

We recently upgraded our Atlassian applications (Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket and Crucible). We have Application links created between each application using OAuth Impersonation and everything appears to work good. 

The issue we face is that whenever navigating through the Application links, you are still required to login to each system individually?

Is there a confi or something we are missing? Any ideas?

This is a feature, not a bug. This is exactly how oAuth is supposed to work. Impersenation means that the application can perform an action as the user in the remote application.

The logins you are mentioning should only be occuring once per application combo. So JIRA -> Confluence only once. Then Fisheye -> Confluence again. And JIRA -> Fisheye again. But if you go to any of those again, they should maintain the connection.

What you're looking for is called Trusted Applications and is a very poor security model. I believe that long term it will actually be completely removed from newer versions of the tools.
