I’m working on a small integration with Jira issues. I have a Connect App that renders some entity properties in the right panel. The data it renders will be provided by an automated external process (no user interaction). Ideally, the user would only have to install the Connect App for all of this to work.
So far, I haven’t been able to find any documented pattern to achieve this.
The best I’ve come up with: The Connect App is supplemented with an Application Link. The automated process I referred to earlier uses the Application Link (OAuth) to securely access the REST API.
What I don’t like about this approach is that it requires the user to install an App and configure an Application Link, making for a pretty involved process.
Does anybody know of better options?
