Create JIRA Issue from Applinks Assigns the Reporter as the Admin User
After installing an applinks connection, an issue created in JIRA under the user who created the applink (the admin user), not the currently logged in user.
The applinks connector is using basic authentication. It's possible that application links have been configured in both directions, from JIRA to Confluence and vice-versa.
- Delete the applinks from both JIRA and Confluence.
- Reset the applink. Configure trusted applications authentication rather than basic. See Linking to Another Application.
Atlassian recommends OAuth
All new Application Links are created using OAuth. It provides all of the functionality of Trusted Applications and Basic Authentication. OAuth allows applications to authenticate and authorise users without accessing their credentials.
