Cannot login jira with api using javascript Edited

Currently I am trying to write a script in node.js to achieve following actions:

1. Login jira;

2. Create issue.

Here is my login code:

client.post('https://jira.stubcorp.com/login.jsp?permissionViolation=true', {
data: {
username: 'username',
password: 'password'
},
headers: {
"Accept": "text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,image/webp,image/apng,*/*;q=0.8",
"Content-Type": "application/json"
}
}, function (data, response) {
// ...
}

In response, I cannot find seraph.rememberme.cookie to set in create jira api headers or valid JSESSIONID (as when I use the JSESSIONID in response header, create jira api always raise 401 error.)

Please help to check where goes wrong.

Thanks.

Hello,

You are trying to do cookie authentication in Jira. You are not doing it the right way. Kindly read the following article

https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/jira/platform/jira-rest-api-cookie-based-authentication/

Thanks.

I tried, but always return 401 error code,

client.post('https://jira.example.com/rest/auth/2/session', {
data: {
username,
password
},
headers: {
"Content-Type": "application/json"
}
}, function (data, response) {
// ...
})

Also, I find that the atlassian.xsrf.token always end with |lout, which should be |lin I think.
