Can fetch Jira API from Terminal, but fail via Google Apps Script

We run a self-hosted Jira-Environment and set up OAUth Access to use the REST API.

I am able to fetch any API Call via Terminal (cURL) but fail each time i will try to fetch via Google Apps Script.

I guess that there is only one simple little detail missing, but i cant find it. :(


This is my cURL Call:

curl -D- -X GET -H "Authorization: Basic BASE64encoded_username:passwd" -H "Content-Type: application/json" ""

 And this is how i would like to fetch it via Google Apps Script: 

function getAPIFeedback() {
  var header_options = {
'Authorization':'Basic BASE64encoded_username:passwd',

var response = UrlFetchApp.fetch('', header_options);

Each time I get a 401 Error, and dont understand why.


I would be very happy if someone could help me.

Bet Regards, Michael

Any chance that there is a reverse proxy involved which requires additional authentication? ;-)


Could be possible.
I will get in touch with my Admin and give it a try.

Thanks for your advice.

Same occurred to me.

It is fixed?

There is a workaround to solve it?
