Can you make rest API calls to the demo site?

I have created a username and password and want to know if I can make rest calls to the JIRA demo site.

https://jira.atlassian.com/

 

I should add that I am able to call the rest api to our companies own site.  But I cannot to the demo site using the same methods.  I wanted to document / write an article and wanted to utilize the demo site for examples.

jira.atlassian.com is not a demo site. But yeah, you can surely use REST APIs with it. You might not have permissions to use all the APIs though!

A lot in https://jira.atlassian.com/ is visible/accessible for everyone (in read only mode) and JIRA REST API is also enabled, however in most cases the usage is restricted to "view-only" mode, as Jobin has mentioned

I get a permission denied/unauthorized error when I use basic auth just like I do when I connect to my server.  I wonder if they have not turned on / allowed rest api calls to their site.
