Hi @amarsha 


You may follow the steps from this page to test basic authentication :

curl -u username:password -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json" http://localhost:8080/rest/api/2/issue/createmeta
  • Replace username:password with the correct username & password
  • Replace localhost:8080 with your baseurl.
