Not able to make Authorization Code API call from postman


Hi , 

I am getting this below error when I am making the Api call for authorization code from the postman.

Can anyone guide me what I should do to resolve this

This is what I am getting when I am making Authorization code call from Postman, But when I did the same over the browser I was able to log in and then get back to the callback URL I had provided.

Hi @Abhishek Jaswal,

On the 1st screenshot, it looks like the error is "unauthorized_client" - there are not much details on the screenshot that is helpful on what is going on. 

Not really sure which kind of authentication you are trying to perform here. You can use API token on Jira Cloud; Basic auth for REST APIs.

Hi @mogavenasan 

I am doing OAUTH 2.0 3 legged authentication call

there as you can see 

first we have to make an authorization call

Which I am doing in inside the Postman but above screenshots were the errors that I am getting


Hah, thanks for the information. The first step is to direct the user to the authorization URL, please share with us what is the request and it's response? You might want to remove any sensitive data on the request and response.

We should be looking for if the request is correctly configured as per the documentation and also what is the response you are getting.

Moreover, the authorization URL will need redirect_uri, technically an URL to your own app. How are you implementing this via the Postman?

I have resolved this issue thanks

for postman the redirect url is :

this same url you have to give under authorization in your jira app

auth uri is:
