Login - JIRA Tutorial

JIRA, a popular issue tracking software, allows the user to log in to the platform using their credentials. Logging in gives users access to their JIRA projects and enables them to create, edit, and track issues. In this tutorial, we will discuss the login process of JIRA.


To log in to JIRA, the user must provide their username and password. The syntax for logging into JIRA is as follows:



Suppose the JIRA URL is https://jira-example.com and the username and password are testuser and testpassword, respectively. The login URL would be:



To log in to JIRA, we need to pass the username and password as URL parameters along with the JIRA login URL. Once the URL has been constructed, we can pass it to any HTTP client library and make a POST request to the URL.


The login process is a prerequisite for accessing the JIRA dashboard, creating new issues, and viewing the progress of existing issues. By logging in, users can access all their JIRA projects and can interact with the issues within each project.

Important Points

  • A valid JIRA account is required to log in.
  • JIRA provides a session cookie on successful login, which is used for subsequent requests. This cookie needs to be passed along with each request to maintain the session.
  • JIRA provides an option to integrate with external authentication providers, such as LDAP or OAuth, for user authentication.


In summary, the login process of JIRA requires a username and password to be passed as URL parameters to the JIRA login URL. This process grants access to JIRA projects, allowing users to create, edit, and track issues. The session cookie returned on successful login must be included in subsequent requests to maintain the session.
