According to the API documentation, the marketplace rest api uses HTTP Basic Authentication: https://developer.atlassian.com/platform/marketplace/rest/intro/
I have been using these APIs for a while, but suddenly we noticed that they started throwing 401 on direct logins. This worked with HTTP Auth 2020-07-08, so it’s a recent change.
What seems to have changed is, that I’m no longer able to login to id.atlassian.com with password, but it enforces me to login via Google (yep, I got google apps connected).
What is the suggested way forward here? I want to have a limited read-only api user for reporting purposes, but it seems I can’t create one in the marketplace and I’m not really sure now where to create it. Preferred solution would of course be to have only an API Key for this, but that seems to not be available for the marketplace.
