Jira REST Service Problem

So i get Json data from my Jira board REST API. It works perfectly when i just start it as a normal project.

Now i want to make an Rest service, that i can fetch json data for the frontend.

But my problem is when i start the exact same method over the rest service i get an 401 (unauthorized) Exception from postman!

Hi @Alexanderkuttner. If you want to make API calls from a backend service (like a script, or heck, even from Postman for that matter), you can use basic authentication with your email address as the username, and an API token as your password.

You can generate API token for your account by going to Atlassian account. You can read more about that here:


NOTE: by basic I mean HTTP basic auth. :slight_smile:
