API Token Authentication Confluence -Increased user security
Increase security for Confluence REST API data connections from external services with API Tokens instead of username & password
Make your SSO environments better with API tokens
In SAML SSO environments, users often have no local passwords anymore. This makes connecting external scripts, services and apps difficult. With API tokens (Personal Access Token) users can now access 3rd party apps.
Permissions Model & Token Scoping
Group Based Permissions for tokens:
Scoping applicable to individual tokens:
-Read & Write edits issues & tickets
-Read-only creates reports, dashboards, notifications & more
Practical Token Management
The token manager allows you to:
-Create on behalf of
Free PoC & configuration support - schedule a session
API Token Auth brings the Personal Access Token functionality to Confluence. It allows API tokens as a very secure way of integrating your Confluence w/ custom scripts & 3rd-party apps (i.e. Zapier, MS Flow, automate.io etc.). It also gives admins precise control over the API usage & solves the issue in SSO environments where users can’t use the API due to a lack of passwords.
