Obtain Jira oauth access token

Trying to use the JIRA api with an internal tool at work. I can access the api using basic_auth, but I'd rather be using oauth. I'm using jira-python for this, and it references getting an access token. I don't see where to get this. Can I get some direction?

I found this answer: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/38356

but it's almost 3 years old. Hoping to get an update answer for this. 

Is there any update on this query? I do see https://github.com/lakshmi-kannan/jira-oauth-access-token-generator/blob/master/generate_access_token.py and https://www.prodpad.com/2013/05/tech-tutorial-oauth-in-jira/ which talk about oauth but they need  hosted application links. Is there a simple way to generate tokens  which can be used to use JIRA REST APIs. Hipchat makes dead simple via-  https://yourorganization.hipchat.com/account/api Please  correct me if  I am wrong.
