Trusted application authentication (or 'trusted apps') is an Atlassian-developed mechanism allowing two applications to exchange information on behalf of a logged-in user. Atlassian Gadgets can use trusted application authentication to allow transparent authorization of gadgets running in an Atlassian gadget container application to access data and services from other Atlassian applications that have been configured to trust it. For example, an administrator can configure JIRA and Confluence to communicate in a trusted way, so that Confluence can request information from JIRA on behalf of the currently logged-in user. JIRA will not ask the user to log in again or to supply a password.
