 Hello @Chakresh Tiwari

Thank you for reaching out.

The command you are trying to run (/rest/api/3/project) is deprecated on Jira Cloud REST API, so it might be not working for some Jira sites. Please, try to get all your projects by running the query below in your browser:

About the request for creating a new project:

1 - Make sure that you are authenticating with a user that is allowed to create a project

2 - Try to add the userID or e-mail address instead of the name in the Project Lead field 

3 - Make sure to use a project key that was never used before

Let us know if this information helps.

Hi  @Petter Gonçalves 

Thanks for Your suggestion and I tried according to that but still, it is giving the same error  I have attached the screenshot whatever I am passing in request Body Please check this and tell me where I am wrong. In response, I am getting HTML with status code 400.

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">

<title>HTTP Status 400 – Bad Request</title>

<h1>HTTP Status 400 – Bad Request</h1>
<hr class="line" />

<p><b>Message</b> Claim &#39;qsh&#39; is missing.</p>
<p><b>Description</b> The server cannot or will not process the request due to something that is perceived to be a
