We have a use case where we need to access information that is not currently available via the Jira Cloud REST API. As an alternative, we could scrape this from the Jira web UI, as the info is available in one of the Jira screens.
For this, we need to open up a browser programmatically and authenticate to Jira. During our experiments we tried various authentication techniques, including JWT.
It seems JWT-based authentication is not enabled for Jira web pages?! It is not documented anywhere whether it “will work” or “will not work”, but we couldn’t get this working.
Does anyone know if it is supposed to work? (Sample code eventually?)
