JIRA Rest api from curl always returns 404 for me Edited

When I issue the following command I always get a http 404 unauthorized error:

curl -D- -u username:pwd -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json" https://mycompany.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/issue/ISSUE-101

However I can paste the api url in my browser and it displays the json response just fine.

Surely if I can access this issue via a browser then I should be able to access it via curl?

Could this be a user permissions setting? I asked one of the admins to issue the curl command using their credentials and it worked for them.

Switching to using my email instead of my username overcomes this issue strangely
