AJAX call to create issue gets 403 error, but Postman POST request works

Edited

Hey,

I'm trying to create an issue using the REST API. I am able to create issues using basic authentication with Postman.

However  using a button that runs an AJAX call gets me a 403. 

$(document).ready(function() {
$("button").click(function() {
$.ajax({
type: "POST",
url: "https://mysite.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/issue",
dataType: "JSON",
username: "username",
password: "password",
contentType: "application/json",
data:
JSON.stringify({
"fields": {
"project": {
"key": "TEST"
},
"summary": "LOL work.",
"issuetype": {
"name": "Bug"
},
"description": "One more thing to decide if it really worked"
}
})
});
});
});

The code above uses the same username and password as my Postman call, which produces a ticket. Any thoughts?

Some other details:

  • I am also using the CORS Chrome Extension plugin to avoid CORS issues.
  • I am the administrator on the account so accessibility shouldn't be an issue
  • I also tried using 'headers' within the AJAX body

Hi Tim,

Could you try this way?

 

$(document).ready(function() {
$("button").click(function() {
$.ajax({
type: "POST",
url: "https://mysite.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/issue",
dataType: "JSON",
contentType: "application/json",
beforeSend: function (xhr) {
xhr.setRequestHeader ("Authorization", "Basic " + btoa(username + ":" + password));
xhr.setRequestHeader ("X-Atlassian-Token", "no-check");
},
data:
JSON.stringify({
"fields": {
"project": {
"key": "TEST"
},
"summary": "LOL work.",
"issuetype": {
"name": "Bug"
},
"description": "One more thing to decide if it really worked"
}
})
});
});
});

 

Regards

Hi Jack,

I have tried above code but I am getting 

"from origin 'null' has been blocked by CORS policy: Response to preflight request doesn't pass access control check: No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource."

any updates?
