CORS error with React API Requests

Hello, I'm trying to make a request using the JIRA API. I included the needed username and password, but I'm getting a CORS error.

I've tried both axios and fetch.


What do I need to make a request in React? Any example?




const res = await "", {},

Hi @Cecil Carter ,

welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Please see the documenation for the Jira cloud REST API. Basic auth could be used, but you should use API token instead of password, see here.

I would also recommend you to start with some simplier requests like GET project or issue. POST requests usually expects some additional data provided in your request.

There are also examples visible in the documentation. Not for the React, but still I believe it could help you.

I've also noticed your URL is not correct (two slashes), please use

Would you please provide us the exact error mesage you get?
