Atlassian APIs

In an Internet-connected world, web and mobile applications are designed for humans to use, and APIs are designed for other systems and applications to use. Atlassian offers several APIs allowing you to integrate and show data about users project, tasks and much more in external systems.

API Integrations

You to extract such personal data using HTTP Basic Auth, but this approach has several disadvantages. First of all users passwords are exposed, and integrations break when users change their passwords. In SSO environments, it is common that user records does have any passwords set at all in the Atlassian applications.

API tokens overcome these challenges by assigning unique and integration specific authentication credentials and individual users. The screenshot below shows how users can create and manage their own api tokens.

Fast User Switch and SSO

This article shows how Kantega SSO Enterprise (K-SSO) can be used in combination with the Fast User Switch (FUS) app from Actonic. Together these two apps gives system admins super powers. With K-SSO, users can sign in to Jira using the same identity as they use elsewhere in their work day. System admins can also configure and align multiple login mechanisms to balance security and usability. With FUS, system admins can also trouble shoot and configure Atlassian systems on behalf of users.
