Using Jira API from Postman via OAuth

Hi there,

for some reasons, need to access production at customer Jira with enabled websudo.

Would like to use Postman and Rest API.

Using Basic auth is working, but I don't like that as final solution. 

Anyone know how to setup token solution with OAuth or session?

Tried few steps via linked applications, but without any success.

Probably this link can help further.

Still not able to made it works with Postman. There is an OAuth implementation, but I would assume, that it have to be kind of magically configured. Will try to reach postman support. 

Hey Tomas,

Could you please share how you got a session started using Postman?


Hi Matthew,

still using basic auth for API calls. 

Was unable to determine successful oauth setting and my time resources was and still are very limited. 

If you would find it out, please, share with community over there.

Hi Tomas,

Can you please share how you manged to use JIRA API from POSTMAM via basic auth? I need to hit JIRA APIs from POSTMAN.


Hi Ankita, its quite easy, you just have to use user account with appropriate credentials. Of course the instance have to be set to accept API calls and return results. Do you have some concrete problem I can help you with?

I too, would like to find a way to connect postman using oauth successfully, I've been going around in circles with the documentation. Basic auth does work but would prefer to use oauth, either as an app or not.
