JRJC and JIRA Cloud

With reference to following JRJC wiki,

This seems kinda out of date and wondering if there is an updated version which can be used with both Server and Cloud version of JIRA. Looking for some references as to connecting to cloud version of JIRA. I have built a sample REST client using JRJC working with server version (7.x) and wondering if it can work with cloud version as well.

For the most part, yes.  The REST APIs on Cloud and Server are mostly the same, so a JRJC based application will talk to both of them the same way.

However, they are diverging products, so do not expect them to be identical, and certainly plan for them to diverge further.  I suspect all the basic stuff will remain the same (projects, issues, workflows etc), but you'll find reporting and admin stuff diverging quite a lot.

That has nothing to do with JRJC.

Application links are for linking Atlassian applications together.  The JRJC is a program that gives codes a client library for handling Jira REST calls in their applications.

I am using Jira Cloud . Using JRJC , I am not able to do authentication itself, I am following this blog ( , creating jira client by passing username & password in function shows below , however I am getting 401 authorization failure . Is there different client for cloud ?

private JiraRestClient getJiraRestClient() {
return new AsynchronousJiraRestClientFactory()
.createWithBasicHttpAuthentication(getJiraUri(), this.username, this.password);

Is there any viable java lib for Jira Cloud?
