JIRA Rest API Login using C#

I've written below C# code to login to JIRA Rest API:

var url = new Uri("http://localhost:8090/rest/auth/latest/session?os_username=tempusername&os_password=temppwd");
var request = WebRequest.Create(url) as HttpWebRequest;
if (null == request)
{
return "";
}
request.Method = "POST";
request.ContentType = "application/json";
request.ContentLength = 200;
request.KeepAlive = false;
using (var response = request.GetResponse() as HttpWebResponse)
{
}


When I execute this, application just goes on running without returning any response. Please suggest if this is the right way of calling JIRA Loin using REST API

Hi, as you are sending data via POST, you cannot simply add os_username and os_password to your URI string. Refer to the WebRequest documentation on how this can be done in C#.

Please refer to this link for an example on basic REST API authentication.

If you need OAuth, refer to this link.

It's there a reason you only want to login? I generally just use HTTP Basic Auth with my REST request.
