Create issue via rest api

Hello,

I am able to successfully create an issue by passing the username and password as shown below:

curl -D- -u myusername:mypassword -X POST --data '{ "fields": {"project": {"key": "TEST"},"summary": "Test Summary 1 2 3...","issuetype": {"name": "Task"}}}' -H "Content-Type: application/json"https://dbxbizanalytics.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/issue/

 

but when I pass in the auth headers instead of the password, I get AUTHENTICATED_FAILED. Here's the call:

curl -D-  -X POST --data '{ "fields": {"project": {"key": "TEST"},"summary": "Test Summary 1 2 3...","issuetype": {"name": "Task"}}}' -H "Content-Type: application/json"https://dbxbizanalytics.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/issue/

 

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

 

Srinivas.

Where is the authentication header in the second call? There is just Content-Type...

Sorry, copied incomplete command. Here's the correct one:

curl -D-  -X POST -H "Authorization: Basic mybase64encoded_username:password" --data '{ "fields": {"project": {"key": "TEST"},"summary": "Test Summary 1 2 3...","issuetype": {"name": "Task"}}}' -H "Content-Type: application/json"https://dbxbizanalytics.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/issue/

 

If the username:password pair is properly Base64 encoded your command seems OK. Try with the -v option to see more verbose output.

On a side note, any reason why you want to use an Authorization header? Using -u does exactly the same thing.
