Try making the following request:

Did it return a list of all the issues in the project with the key DIG?

Same Error:400 Bad Request


Auth: API Key

{    "errorMessages": [        "The value 'DIG' does not exist for the field 'project'."    ],    "warningMessages": []}

Then the connection is working just fine, but, from Jira's perspective, there is no project with the key 'DIG', so it's just responding by saying "You're asking for something that I can't find" or your authentication is wrong and Jira is saying "You're not authenticated properly, so I'm not going to tell you if there is a project with that key"

Open a web browser and log into Jira at and open the project and double-check what the key is. Then, open a new tab in the same browser and try the REST query URL again (The browser will have a cached session authentication key so you won't need to authenticate). If the error still happens, you have something else very strange happening.

While hitting url in Browser got response with all cards details. [with logged in session]



Below URL



Excellent. So the connection works, your credentials work, there is a project with the key DIG and it contains 15,759 issues. Everything is working as expected.

So, your problem with the initial error means whatever method you're using to authenticate with whatever tool / script you're using isn't working. Jira is just telling you "You haven't authenticated properly, so I'm not going to tell you if there is a project with the key DIG". Check how you're authenticating.
