Creation of JSESSIONID - Curl (7) Failed to connect to port 8090: Timed out

Hi Community,

I'm trying to connect my Jira Cloud from Qlik Sense (installed on AWS):

Here're the steps I'm following:

  • In order to manage the Jira connection from Qlik Sense, I've to call the Jira REST API. Here's an example (this is working from a web browser):,description,status,created

By testing this connection from Qlik Sense, I'm getting the attached error message.

  • Based on my investigation, I've seen that I've to specify a JSESSIONID inside the REST API Call.

Here's the link I'm following in order to create a JSESSIONID:

I'm using the below curl command: curl -X POST -H "content-type: application/json" -d "{"username": "XXXXXX", "password": "XXXX!"}"

And getting the following error message: curl: (7) Failed to connect to port 8090: Timed out


What is wrong here? I'm able to reach my Jira instance from a web browser but this is not working from a curl command :/

Thanks a lot for your help,

Hi @Simon_Hayotte , 


I'm seeing one obvious error here, in your curl command : you should not use the "8090" port to connect to your site. You curl command should look like :


curl -X POST -H "content-type: application/json" -d "{"username": "XXXXXX", "password": "XXXX!"}"


Let me know if this helps, 



Thanks for your feedback Alexis.

By removing the port, here's the result:

Do you have an idea about what's missing/wrong?

That means you're reaching the Atlassian cloud site. Now you need to get the proper REST API. 

You should have a look at this documentation for authentication :
