When should I use API Token instead of password?

  1. Google Apps: If you use Google apps to connect to your Jira account, you will need to generate an API Token to authenticate as you do not have a Jira password available.
  2. Two-step auth: If your Jira authentication required two-step verification, you will need to generate and authenticate using an API Token.
  3. New password: If you regularly change your Jira password or need to reset it, API tokens are more reliable and offer better security control
