bitbucket tagging fails with 401 error

I am trying to run the following script for tagging my commit -


curl{orgname}/{repo}/refs/tags -D- \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-H "Authorization:Basic {emailId:token encoded string}" \
-d \
\"name\" : \"new-tag-name\",

\"target\" : {
\"hash\" : \"{full hash of the commit I am trying to tag}\",
}" \

 The script returns the following response -


HTTP/2 401 

server: nginx

www-authenticate: Basic realm=" HTTP"

content-type: text/html; charset=utf-8

strict-transport-security: max-age=31536000; includeSubDomains; preload


Can someone please point out what I am doing wrong?
