Validate Jira Username and password using JIRA REST

Hello,

I'm trying to write a script that allow me to validate the jira user credentials

Could you please tell me What JIRA REST method could I call to make sure that the entered username and password are correct and belong to a valid Jira user? 

 

Thanks in advance

Any of them - the REST interface needs the process to login (or provide credentials generated by a previous login).  You could simply log in and try to read an issue.  If your credentials are right, it'll give you an issue or a "not found" message.  If they're wrong, it'll simply refuse access.

Have a look through the "authentication" section at https://developer.atlassian.com/jiradev/jira-apis/jira-rest-apis/jira-rest-api-tutorials/jira-rest-api-version-2-tutorial
