I’ve tried to find an answer to this in the documentation and this forum but I’m still not sure how to accomplish what we need, I’m hoping it’s possible and that someone can point me in the right direction.
Basically the question is, let’s say I have an Okta account with an Atlassian account linked. Is it possible for me to create a web interface (php / Laravel) that will make use of the SSO to authenticate a user, and after authenticating with Okta, is it then possible for me to make use of the Jira REST API of the connected app? Does Okta provide some sort of bridge between their api and connected app’s apis?
Essentially, if a connected app has it’s own REST api, is it possible to authenticate to it and perform api calls with the user only having to provide their Okta login details, and our system never needing to know the user’s details for said connected app?
I would really appreciate any input on this.
Thanks in advance
