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

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) ?

What operation are you runing? If it's something in admin interface, you will need to manage cookies.  

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

My scripts are developed in php but for problem determination purpose I'm using "curl" from Mac OSx as documented here :

Same issue here.
