Trying to configure the JIRA connector to your JIRA cloud we came across the following:

In our JIRA we only have option for OAuth authentication.

The JIRA connector allows still for basic authentication, at least the documention part of the connector should mention that it is preferable to use OAuth. 



After some further reading, I have to rewrite my request, Basic Authentication is still possible only not using a password, but still possible by generating an API Token. This can be done via: https://id.atlassian.com/manage/api-tokens

The generated API token and belonging email address can be set as Effective User Name and Effective Password in the OutSystemsJIRA Connector REST API of the JIRAConnectore eSpace.
