How to solve REST API error 401 with atlassian account used in basic authentication

jmtizonCV April 11, 2017

Since the move from JIRA userid to atlassioan account for authentication I get a 401 error calling REST JIRA APIs with basic authentication. 

Can this be related to the @ in my user (atlassian account) ?

I'm having the same issue here. Every few days the API returns a 401 header. After resetting the password from Atlassian (to the same as before), it works again. 

Until it's reset again and I ahve to run through the same steps again to fix it.

Works now from curl :-)

No idea why maybe latest changes on atlassian accounts management helped
