Whatever you mean by "post call", it's not logged in as a user who has the rights to create the issues, so you need to fix your call so that it logs in correctly.

Hi Balaji, 

What happens when you try to run this curl?

curl -D- -u username:password -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json" "https://<your-jira-uril>/rest/api/2/project"

If you still face issues, may you paste the call which you are getting 401?
