I am currently accessing Jira data using Python and the Rest API, and authenticating through a Jira account designated solely for reporting. However, I noticed that my reports were not pulling in all of the data, because the account did not have permissions to view all projects and their issues.
Would adding my reporting log-in to the “Browse projects” permissions in all permissions schemes allow me to see all of the issues? Or would using oAuth instead of basic authentication solve this problem? Or perhaps some other solution?
We are using the cloud instance so we do not have access to the Jira database.
Thanks in advance for your insight.
Adding your reporting login to browse projects permission would solve the problem in case you do not have project security schemes. If you have project security scheme you need to add your reporting account to the security schemes as well.
