I'm new in using jira rest api.

Here is my code:

$username = 'xxxx';

$password = 'xxxx';

$url = '';

$curl = curl_init();

curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_USERPWD, "$username:$password");

curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_URL, $url);

curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);

curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1);

curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, 0);

curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, 0);

$issue_list = (curl_exec($curl));

echo $issue_list;

Why am I getting this error?:

Encountered a 401 - Unauthorized error while loading this page.

How to deal with this? Is there anything I need to configure in JIRA or in my Server?

If you have simpliest approach in calling rest api I will be glad to know it.

It looks like you've entered wrong credencials. This code works fine, after changing "Issue" to "issue" in URL.

I've got 401 when username/password was incorrect.

The other thing may be that your user is locked and you need to solve captcha - try to login with that credentials to JIRA via web interface.

Hope that I could help,

Hi, this same thing happens to us. When we connect via curl, the account is eventually being locked. Is there a way to avoid that? We can't always log in on the web interface just to solve the captcha.
