Security overview

Security helps protect customer data from unauthorized access and from malicious or accidental changes. It also allows administrators to install apps with confidence, letting users enjoy the benefits of apps without worry.

Scripts and other REST API clients

Scripts and other REST API clients use basic authentication. Basic authentication uses an API token to authenticate the client. The token is generated from a user's Atlassian Account, encoded, then added to the header for requests to the API.

Authorization for basic authentication is based on the permissions of the user you used to generate the API token. For instance, if you're utilizing basic authentication, the user must possess the Team Admin permission to add a schedule to the team. This can be done by calling POST{cloudId}/v1/schedules/ (Create Schedule).
