you have to use URL as like this


check this


i have already done that. inside my RunQuery() method i'm appending that "issue" part to the base URL

yes i know that, did you noticed diffrenced between your url and my url?

you used rest api as "rest/api/2/" but it is not valid, you have to use like this "rest/api/2/issue"
