I am currently trying to integrate a third party application to JIRA.
This application will create issues within JIRA Service Management - Cloud.
I am using the JIRA API with Basic Auth right now, but I want to switch Oauth Authentication.
But I am utterly confused by the documentation on which Auth to use and how.
Seems that there are two ways:
OAuth for REST APIs - https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/jira/platform/jira-rest-api-oauth-authentication/
OAuth 2.0 (3LO) apps - https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/jira/platform/oauth-2-3lo-apps/
For the use case I have, so a backend application creating issues in JIRA, which should I use?
I want it to run as an application, so I would assume it’s 2LO, but are there any examples available to do this?
Thank you in advance.
