[Bug] After upgrade jira v6.4.x to jira-core v7.4.1: Oops, you've found a dead link. Edited

I've installed trial jira server on my Debian 8 machine, configure it over the web interface which was accesible on the 8080 port and when I am trying to test some api calls I've got Oops, you've found a dead link. - JIRA

I have created an issue from the web interface with the key: ES-1 and when trying to make this call via 'Postman' is not working:



with Basic Auth set with the username and password created

Do you get the same problem when you try a simple curl or wget instead of using postman?

Hi Lucaci,

  • Are you running Postman from the same machine JIRA is installed on or is it a remote machine?
  • Have you verified the baseURL?
  • Do any API calls work?

I have see instances where changing the baseURL caused issues but I tested that and left Postman exactly as is and didn't run into any issues.

Heres' a screenshot of my Postman setup:

The only thing I did was add my user name and password.

I am using JIRA and Postman on the same machine so localhost works with the networking on my machine.  If you're using a Proxy or coming from another machine you may need to check the baseURL.



I had to use the url without the 'jira' part in it, I don't know where I saw that I put '/jira' after the host:port so usgin this url to make api calls worked:
