I’m a rookie in JIRA Add on development. When I execute a REST API method (/rest/greenhopper/latest/rapidviews/list), I get a 403 error in return. After some digging it seems to be related with lack of authentication.
I’ve been looking through the SDK documentation and I found out about the 3 authentication methods: Basic, Cookie based and OAuth. What I would like to know is what is the correct way to handle the issue, being that the Add On will be running “inside” JIRA, after the user authenticates. Is there a way to inherit the current user context, instead of having the add on authenticating once again.
