Is there currently a problem with API Keys?

I have tried with 3 accounts and a handful of keys in each, and was never able to get anything but 401:

curl -D- \
-X GET \
-H "Authorization: Basic <base64(email:api_key)>" \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \

Is there some problem with API Keys in Jira?

Place the issue key number after the last "/"

My problem was with the wrong token because there are two of them: Atlassian Administration -> Settings -> API Keys and

After the token was the right one I got HTTP 405 and that was because of the issue number, as you suggested, thank you!
