Able to create jira ticket by jira.bat in CMD but not with jira.sh in putty

I downloaded atlassian-cli-2.5.0-distribution.zip, unzipped it, And simply ran

'jira --action createIssue --project "P1" --type "type1" --summary "Thist is test content." --server https://mydomain.com/jira --user username --password pwd'

This successfully created a ticket in https://mydomain.com/jira.

I need to execute this from unix in my task. So I moved the unzipped folder of atlassian-cli-2.5.0-distribution.zip to a unix server. There i executed below script

'sh jira.sh --action createIssue --project "P1" --type "type1" --summary "Thist is test content." --server https://mydomain.com/jira --user username --password pwd'

Unable to log in to server: http://mydomain/jira/rpc/soap/jirasoapservice-v2 with user: username.

Cause: ; nested exception is:

java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused

Here /rpc/soap/jirasoapservice-v2 got appended with https://mydomain.com/jira.

Please let me know how to avoid that and to create ticket thru jira.sh

Make sure you can reach that server address from a browser on the unix server.

Hi Bob,

I had a question -- does the unix/linux box need a browser installed, or just specific ports installed? I am running into a similar issue.

May I add -- your software is a piece of genius. :)

No, the CLI has no requirements like that. However, it can be helpful for resolving environmental issues like connection issues. And thanks!

Yes Bob. I am able to access server address from unix server browser.

Please help me how to avoid the append "/rpc/soap/jirasoapservice-v2" happening in the actual server address https://mydomain.com/jira.

Due to that I got the error

Unable to log in to server: http://code.mydomain.com/jira/rpc/soap/jirasoapservice-v2 with user: username.

Cause: ; nested exception is:

java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused

You have stated 2 separate addresses: https://mydomain.com/jira and http://code.mydomain.com/jira . So try both using the CLI and via browser.
