404 with API token and 401 with Basic Auth when GET API call made through POSTMAN on JIRA cloud



I have a JIRA cloud account and have issue created. Created a API token to test API though postman. 

Selected Authentication type as OAuth2.0 with the API Token, getting a 404 error. Also tried the same with Basic authentication getting error as 401. 

Below is the URL I used

When this is used in a browser able to see the response, not through post Man.


Can someone help on this?
