Supported use cases and their solutions with our Rest API add-on
JPMC sought to bolster the security of their JIRA instance, recognizing the inherent weaknesses of password-based authentication and the potential vulnerabilities it posed. Our API Security for JIRA REST API add-on effectively addressed this concern and fulfilled their security requirements.
JPMC had several third-party applications integrated into their JIRA instance. Their JIRA architecture is multilayered and secure, and normal password-based authentication was not suitable. The OAuth provider that they used was not able to perform token-based authentication.
JPMC wanted a more secure way to integrate their applications using a third-party OAuth provider's JWT token.
How does it work?
At first, we did not provide any assistance to their OAuth provider. However, upon receiving a special request, we went above and beyond by tailoring our REST API add-on to cater to their OAuth provider's specific needs. This enhancement allowed us to grant support for their chosen authentication method.
To ensure the security of both internal and external JIRA REST API calls, we implemented reliable third-party JWT token authentication. This authentication mechanism guarantees that any sensitive data being transmitted through the APIs is only accessed by authorized parties. This ensures that data remains protected and confidential throughout its transmission, reducing the risk of unauthorized access or data breaches.
Users can sign into Atlassian applications with your SAML 2.0-capable identity provider. We support all known IdPs: Google Apps, ADFS, Azure AD, Okta, Salesforce, miniOrange, etc.
