OpsGenie to JSM integration without an API token - feature request

Like many others, we use SSO to login to Atlassian. Are there any alternatives for an OpsGenie to JIRA integration that does not make use of an API token associated with a JIRA user account? This seems like bad practice and presents several challenges including:

  1. If the user who generated the API token leaves and is disabled then the integrations stop working
  2. The issues created in JIRA / JSM are show the user as the issue reporter and so they get notifications anytime an issue is created or updated. (suggestion so far from support is to use an automation to change the reporter, but i think that only partly solves the issue).

It seems like this should be treated like a first party app integration that uses either some form of client credentials token or something similar.

If there isn't an alternative solution for this today, how do I go about bringing attention to this in the form of a feature request or something like that?

Hi Cameron,

 

Thank you for your valuable feedback! Since your team utilizes SSO to login, you need to generate an API token and use this token as the password in the integration settings password field. Currently, there are not any alternatives for an Opsgenie to Jira integration that does not make use of an API token associated with a Jira user account in this case. If you would like, I can raise this feature request on your behalf. Hope this helps, please let me know if you have any further questions, comments, or concerns. 

 

Thanks,

Skyler

Yes I think a feature request would be most appropriate. A user level token isn't an ideal integration method for a first party application integration like this.
