Notify rest with ScriptRunner for Jira cloud is not working


I'm trying to send an email to some user with ScriptRunner plugin.

This is my code:

import org.apache.commons.codec.binary.Base64;
import static

//Define authorisation credentails
String authString = "USER:PASS"
byte[] authEncBytes = Base64.encodeBase64(authString.getBytes());
String authStringEnc = new String(authEncBytes);

// Add this header into your rest call to specify basic authentication

def resp = post("/rest/api/2/issue/MSD-35/notify")
.header("Authorization", "Basic ${authStringEnc}")
.header("Content-Type", "application/json")
subject: 'Service desk automation success',
textBody: "Service desk ticket created with script runner automation.",
htmlBody: "test",
to: [
users: [[
name: "neta.elyakim",
active: true
assert resp.status == 204 

 The problem is it's not working- this is script runner docs on this

I just want to send the email.

I tried it with/out the authorization and it's still not working

This is the error:

Assertion failed: assert resp.status == 204 | | | | 400 false status: 400 - Bad Request body: <html> <head><title>400 Bad Request</title></head> <body bgcolor="white"> <center><h1>400 Bad Request</h1></center> </body> </html> at at Script1$ Source) at Script1$ Source) at at$evaluate$0.callCurrent(Unknown Source) at$evaluate$0.callCurrent(Unknown Source) at at Source)

Please advise!

With the help of script runner support-

I manage to send the email to a different user:

def resp = post("/rest/api/2/issue/${issueKey}/notify")
.header("Content-Type", "application/json")
subject: 'Service desk automation success!',
textBody: "Service desk ticket created with script runner automation.",
htmlBody: "<p>Service desk ticket created with script runner automation.</p>",
to: [
//users: [[
/// name: "neta.elyakim",
// active: true
groups: [[
name: 'some group'

but when I tried to send the request with different user auth (not my auth - different user and to send it to myself)  it's didn't work.

In order to send the post request with someone else auth it needs to be done like this:
