401 Unauthroized error when running curl GET API command on my localhost

Hello all, I'm trying to run a simple GET request through the JIRA API. However, every time I run the code, I am getting a 401 Unauthorized error, despite using my admin username password.

What am I missing in my snippet in order to give authorization?

Here is the snipped of what I'm using:

curl -D- -u user:userPassword -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json" "http://localhost:8080/rest/api/2/user?username=selectedUser

Everything looks good. There is an extra double quotes before your url but I am guessing that is a typo.

Make sure your username and password is correct. Can't think of any other issues.

That fixed it, thanks!
