How to managed authentication calling jira.issueviews:issue-xml?

I usually access some ticket information from my company’s Jira using the method issue view:issue-xml, directly from my laptop browser.

As I am already authenticated to Jira, this doesn’t ask me for login but if I try to access the same information by Google Sheets it doesn’t work.

Can I authenticate myself by accessing the same methods? Something like passing a username/password in the parameters of the URL or (better) a token ID in the URL as well.

My final target is to use the APIs endpoint to Google Sheets and import with the function IMPORTXML.


This is not part of the formally-supported and documented APIs for Jira so I can’t advise on auth. Perhaps you could use the REST APIs?
