REST API Authentication in Atlassian using Custom Provider

Enhancing API Security for Jira REST APIs with the OAuth/API Token plugin will let you authenticate any application (Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket) APIs using any third-party OAuth/OIDC provider or API Tokens. The app supports Azure AD, Keycloak, Okta, AWS Cognito, Google, Github, Slack, Gitlab, Facebook, and any Custom Provider.

Atlassian provides REST APIs to perform several operations such as Create Page, Delete Page, Add Comments, Create Space, etc. However, it supports only two authentication methods for REST APIs:

1. Basic Authentication
2. Using OAuth 1.0

The Enhance API Security for Jira REST APIs with OAuth/API Token plugin allows you to use any third-party OAuth 2.0 provider/ OpenID connect to authenticate REST APIs of any application (Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket). Here we will go through a guide to configure Custom Provider.
