Jira Trigger Plugin authentication

Hi Team,

We have been successfully using the JIRA Trigger | Jenkins plugin on our Jira internal server, and it has been working flawlessly. However, as part of our migration to Jira Cloud SAAS, we would like to continue using this plugin. Our main query pertains to understanding the authentication mechanism for the endpoint ${Jenkins URL}/jira-trigger-webhook-receiver/, which we are configuring in the webhook section.

Could someone please provide guidance on how Jenkins can authenticate incoming payloads from Jira Cloud, ensuring that it only accepts data from our specific Jira instance? If there are any wiki references or documentation available that cover this authentication process, please share them with us. Your assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your help!

Best regards,

Hi Team,

can anyone share information on above part?

Hi @suryab800 ,

Couldn’t you use a Secret Token?

I think Jira Cloud could include this token in the payload, and Jenkins could then verify the token to ensure the authenticity of incoming requests.
