Oauth jira authentication client returns 405 when requesting token


Hi all,

I am following instructions at to get the access token for jira api access. However, at the step of requesting temporary token by calling the request-Token endpoint(/plugins/servlet/oauth/request-token), it keeps returns 405 Method Not Allowed for me.  When I changed the method from "post" to "get", this error is gone, however returns null token. So it looks to me my private key and consumer key are passed correctly, so what could be wrong? 405 Method Not Allowed

at com.atlassian.oauth.client.example.OAuthClient.handleGetRequestTokenAction(
at com.atlassian.oauth.client.example.OAuthClient.execute(
at com.atlassian.oauth.client.example.ClientMain.main(

Process finished with exit code 0


My config.properities file is:



thank you very much

Hi there!

Firstly, I would strongly recommend you delete/edit this post to remove information from the post, as it contains sensitive information that you do not want shared.

Secondly, I do not think this is the right place to post this question, as this is the community for the Automation for Jira. I think you're looking for 'Jira' community, so maybe remove this post and repost your question (without the key info) there.


Thank you for your response.

I did modify the private key and other confidential info when posting here but thank you for bringing this up

Just an update the issue is fixed by not using string concat for the private key string, instead of converting it to one line string.
