Jira REST API v3 with OAuth 2.0 (3LO) returns 401 Unauthorized



I used Postman to check if the Jira Platform REST API v3 with OAuth 2.0 (3LO) works BUT received this error... 401: Unauthorized.


  • Authentication method = Bear Token
  • Access Token = eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1N.......... .eNPQT1AkZt5Ftqtod8
  • Registered scope = offline_access read:jira-user read:jira-work read:me read:account

Return from Postman
