Basic auth is supported in all instances. You are getting an "Unauthorized" error. That could be wrong password or that the user doesn't have the required permissions (to view the issue in this case).

i am using basic authentiation but i am getting www-authenticate:OAuth realm="https%3A%2F%2Fproduct-jira.ciena.com" in Server response . 

It is returning an HTML page:

<title>Unauthorized (401)</title>

Do you have the said issue in your JIRA? I see that you are using the same issue key in the JIRA examples.
