Getting authorization from Jira and How to extract total issues into excel file. Edited

Hiii. After running this coding, I still did not get authorization from Jira . Any solution to fix this problem? 

In addition, how to exceed the maxResult 50 by displaying the total issues into excel sheet?

Sub Extract_Jira_Data()

Call testAuthen

End Sub

Public Function UserPassBase64() As String

Dim objXML As Variant
Dim objNode As MSXML2.IXMLDOMElement
Dim arrData() As Byte
Dim UserNameP As String

UserNameP = "userName:password"
arrData = StrConv(UserNameP, vbFromUnicode)

Set objXML = CreateObject("MSXML2.DOMDocument")
Set objNode = objXML.createElement("b64")
objNode.DataType = "bin.base64"
objNode.nodeTypedValue = arrData

UserPassBase64 = objNode.text

End Function
Public Sub testAuthen()

Set ws = ThisWorkbook

Dim userName, password As String

userName = ActiveSheet.OLEObjects("txtUserNameIn").Object.text
password = ActiveSheet.OLEObjects("txtPasswordIn").Object.text

Dim JiraService As New MSXML2.XMLHTTP60
UserNameP = UserPassBase64

With JiraService
.Open "GET", query
.setRequestHeader "Content-Type", "application/json"
.setRequestHeader "Accept", "application/json"
.setRequestHeader "Authorization", "Basic " & UserNameP
.send ""

MsgBox .Status
If .Status = "401" Then
MsgBox "Not authorized or invalid username/password"
MsgBox "Correct credential!!"
End If

Set ws = ThisWorkbook

Dim Json As Object
Dim j As Integer
'Dim i As Integer
Set Json = JsonConverter.ParseJson(.responseText)

j = 2
For j = j To 50

'C3 Num
ActiveSheet.Cells(j, 1) = Json("issues")(j)("fields")("customfield_10400")

'Issue ID
ActiveSheet.Cells(j, 2) = Json("issues")(j)("key")
Next j
End With

End Sub

The Username field must be the e-mail address that is used to login to Jira, not the username.

For the maxResult, it is determined by what your personal setting is. Click on your icon in the top right hand corner and choose Profile, then scroll down to the Preferences section. You'll see below that I have my Page size set to 200, which allows me to get 200 items at a time. click on the Edit icon (pen) to change yours



i tried to use both username and email address to log in but under the usernameP, it read a range of text that not match to what i had insert in the textbox.
