Authenticating Using Jira's Cloud Version

While the on-premise version of Jira uses basic HTTP authentication with only a simple username and password the cloud
version requires the use of an API token to authenticate. To create the API token perform the following steps:

  1. Navigate to Atlassian's API Tokens Screen
  2. Click on the Create API Token button
  3. In the popup box enter Sensu Jira Handler or any label of your liking
  4. Click on the Create button
  5. Click on Copy to clipboard to copy your token

The token copied becomes the password you use to authenticate using the --jira-password or -p option.

sensu-jira-handler -u -p xwBPFTG0s9zYgTfkFsK6505E ...
