JIRA Team Calendar Application Link for non-JIRA User

In the scenario where a user exists in Confluence, and not in JIRA, how can that user view a JIRA Team Calendar?

I currently have the JIRA Application Link set to Trusted Authentication. In this scenario, do I need to change the Application Link to use basic authentication so all data is proxied through a single account?

If so, it would then seem that all activity over the application link from Confluence to JIRA would then no longer be subject to JIRA permissions... and that could be undesirable.

Thank you for any feedback you might have.

Hi, yes the application link assumes shared accounts for it to work best. A single user would work, but it means that user has to have permission to everything you need users to see and would void the permissions that you've setup in a sense.

Unless you are short of user counts, it might be best to add the user in JIRA and assign appropriate permissions.

The JIRA Team Calendar requires users to have access to certain projects and only see those projects.

That is not possible. You need an account in JIRA.
