how to access JIRA ticket by passing token via URL

I am trying to access a jira ticket. How can I pass along the authentication token via a parameter in the URL, which I can provide the parameters os_username and os_password in the request URL (e.g.http://jira.atlassian.com/browse/TST-1?os_username=tester&os_password=tstpassword). The problem with this method is that it transmits your username and password in clear text, which may not be an option.

Is there a way to pass token like http://jira.atlassian.com/browse/TST-1?token=USERTOKEN?

Try using a cookie?

curl -u $USR:$PWD --cookie-jar $COOKIE_FILE_LOCATION -sS --output /dev/null $JIRA_URL
