@SagarThe resource you trying to access is removed from Jira Cloud in favor of API tokens, OAuth, or Atlassian Connect.

Here is deprecation/removal notice by Atlassian -

I suggest you to use basic authentication which is documented here -


Thanks for the information.

I was going through basic authentication documentation which was  referred by you and I found here also they are trying to access  resource "/rest/api/2/issue". Hence again, I am getting 404 error. Could you please help me here. Actually I wanted to create an issue in JIra using Api's which they have exposed.As we need to do authentication before we create issues, I am using above steps.

Below is sample bash file that you can use to create issue in Jira. Please replace,

  1. SITE_NAME with your site address i.e.
  2. EMAIL with your email
  3. API_TOKEN with API Token your might have generated
  4. PROJECT_KEY with key of project you want to create issue in
  5. ISSUE_SUMMARY with textual issue summary
  6. ISSUE_TYPE_NAME with name of issue type, like "Bug", "Task" etc.


Please save this as "" and execute.


curl --request POST \
--url '' \
--user '<EMAIL>:<API_TOKEN>' \
--header 'Accept: application/json' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--data '{
"fields": {
"project": {
"key": "<PROJECT_KEY>"
"summary": "<ISSUE_SUMMARY>",
"issuetype": {
"name": "<ISSUE_TYPE_NAME>"


Note - I have seen that you are adding 'jira' context path after site address before 'rest', this is not correct. API path for JIRA cloud is  'SITE_ADDRESS/rest/api/3/...'
