Remote Authentication


im writing a webapp for JIRA using backbonejs, nodejs and jquery.

My Question is about the remote authentication. Should i use OAuth? Or is there a better way for the login process?

Basic authentication cant be used with webhooks or?

kindly regards

Have you tried either method? Of course the eaisest would be to add os_username and os_password to the url that you access. Next would be basic auth then oAuth.

Hey there,

Basic authentication with webhooks has not yet been implemented yet, but once it has, you will be able to do this with HTTP BASIC AUTH, which means adding the username and password to the URL.

Thx for your fast answers. So For using webhooks i Need oauth?
