How to using python3 connect to JIRA ?

I have same problem...
can't work ?  This is so simple thing, but ..... 
I'm crying.....


import jira.client
from jira.client import JIRA 
options = {'server': ''}
jira = JIRA(options, basic_auth=('myname', 'mypassword'))



Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:/Python/Python35_Workspace/", line 4, in <module>
jira = JIRA(options, basic_auth=('myname', 'mypassword'))
File "C:\Python\Python35\lib\site-packages\jira\", line 310, in __init__
si = self.server_info()
File "C:\Python\Python35\lib\site-packages\jira\", line 1764, in server_info
j = self._get_json('serverInfo')

I think you'll need to read the documentation for the "JIRA client" you are importing there.

My best guess is that you probably need to give it the REST url, not just the base url of JIRA.
