We are building an interface between our Jira instance and other business applications such as SAP. This may be bi-directional; which means we intend to both trigger actions in mentioned applications as well as read certain data from them. It is desired that the role & rights concept of these applications can be considered. This would be achievable if there is an option to pass on the OAuth token of the logged in Jira users to an external application.
We came across ‘Application Links’, which seemed to be a potential solution to achieve this. We were able to add an application link and tested the connection successfully, however, we were unable to find / use this app link in the Jira Scripts using following documentation ApplicationLinkService (Applinks API 3.2 API) (atlassian.com). Thus we wondered if ‘Application Links’ is actually the correct thing to do for above mentioned Use Case?
If yes: Is there some up-to-date documentation / experience available for ‘Application Links’?
If no: Are there other possibilities that we could use (Either Jira OOTB features or any Add Ons)?
Appreciate any input
