Add an application to the Trusted Applications list for SOAP API

I have a custom built timesheet application and would like to integrate with OnDemand.

When a user enters time, I would like it to update the time spent on the JIRA task.

I would like to add my timesheet application as a trusted application to JIRA so that I can call the SOAP API without needing a token for the specific user.

The method I will be using is: addWorklogAndAutoAdjustRemainingEstimate

Will adding my timesheet app to the list of trusted applications allow me to log time against users without needing their password details?

Is there a way to do this?

Unfortunately Trusted Applications are not supported in JIRA OnDemand. See here for the list of restricted functions:

I am in the process of investigating if it is possible to authenticate as a Trusted App for SOAP requests in the standalone version, but I suspect it is not possible there, either.


You may want to keep an eye out for Plugins 3 which will allow software to act as external applications for OnDemand or as plugins for downloaded versions of Atlassian applications.
