How to retrieve Github pull requests info with Jira API?

Sometime in the last year the following endpoint was working to retrieve pull request details from Jira:[issue_id]&applicationType=github&dataType=pullrequest


But now when hitting that endpoint, my account is receiving "you do not have persmission to execute" errors.  Has this endpoint changed and/or is there a supported way to use the Jira API to retrieve pull request details as know by Jira?  I can use the Github API without issue; the goal here is to understand exactly what Jira knows about a given pull request.

I tested this endpoint in 7.4.1 and it is still functional. If you view the project permissions for the project in question, does the user accessing the endpoint have the "View Development Tools" permission granted? When I tried to access the endpoint with a user that didn't have that permission I got the same error you mentioned.
