I'm trying to use Postman to access our cloud instance via REST. I clicked the "Run in Postman" button in the API docs, and it did import a collection into Postman. But in the auth, folder, the Create Session request continually returns 401. When I open the notes at the top, there's a link indicating that that particular endpoint was deprecated last year, with a link to this document.
So, if the only endpoint provided in the collection doesn't actually exist anymore, how do I authenticate via Postman using an API token? I think I can add a new request, but what should the endpoint be?
I'd love it if there were a video out there somewhere, but most of what I've found on YouTube is old enough to be out of date.
I'm not part of the Jira or Confluence team, but I'll see if I can help.
You can still use Postman to test some endpoints (curl is another alternative that is not too much of a pain to learn).
I *think* the key difference is that you need to send an Authorization header with an API token instead of with a user password. So if you setup an API token in your instance, then you can go to your Postman request and change the 'password' being using in the Authorization header. I think the header is 'user:api_token'.
I hope that helps!
Was there any update to this? Since basic authentication was deprecated on June 5th I've run into issues (Auth deprecation). I can create an API-Token but I don't know how to feed it into Postman in a way that works. Simply putting the api-token as the password for basic authentication doesn't work.
