      Description

      Problem Definition

      Confluence should provide the same authentication options present in other tools for REST calls. FishEye and Crucible can be used as an example:

      Suggested Solution

      Provide the same options as in the document above for Confluence.

      Why this is important

      For some customers, basic authentication is not an option due to security concerns.

      Workaround

      Use basic authentication.

      Notes

      If possible, add support for OAuth version 2 for authentication when implementing extra methods.
