The very beginning. Using Postman

I will start by stating that I’m not a software developer, I’m just someone that knows little bit about programming.

My goal is to build my own front-end version of Jira Kanban, so at this very early stage, I’m struggling with the basics, which is practicing GET and POST commands using Postman.

Can someone explain how I can use Postman with Jira? I have generated the token, encrypted (I think I did right) but it just won’t work.

Thank you.

Hello @RafaelIbanhez,

What was the error you got in Postman?
Are you connecting to Jira cloud or DC?

I suspect cloud as you have created this in Jira cloud

Have you looked at the documentation?
