Approach for Load testing of Jira rest api

I am doing load testing of Jira rest api by using locust, when i am running with more than 20 user instances its failing after particular number of hits and again it is getting passed after certain time of interval, so will that be because i am running many user instances from the single IP address and making so many number of requests?

Jira is stopping me to access the app if i am giving more requests with many user instances with the single IP address .
Is there any other approach or tools that i need to follow to perform the load testing of Jira rest api ?

Thanks in Advance !
