Authorization options for Confluence Server REST API

We’re hosting a server edition of Conflunce 6.2 and I’d like to use its REST API. My application sends its requests with HTTP Basic Authentication.

Are there any other authorization options for Confluence Server?

I have found some documention about OAuth2 and JWT but this seems to be applicable for Confluence Cloud only.

Hello @robert.strauch_atlas,

I have seen a similar question here. The answers were a bit dated but I believe there were newer ones in the answers. Might be a good place to start.

Cheers,
Ian
