Hi Jibin

What you're doing through the API is the same as you would do within Jira. So if you wanted to make a comment on behalf of someone else, you would need to log in as them.

Similarly, if you want to POST a comment on behalf of someone else, part of the JSON that you create is a user's login details.

So, if you know what their login details are, you are able to do this passing in their login details instead of your own

I agreed , but the thing that i am trying to accomplish  is something related with importing all the task / project related things from Liquid planner to JIRA . So login as each user / pass credentials of each user with api calls is practically not feasible for me . I also heard about https://tempoplugin.jira.com , not sure whether it will helps or not to accomplish the same

We use Tempo, which is a timesheet plugin for Jira. It also has it's own API, but login credentials are required for it as well. I haven't needed to do an import, so can't advise further
