JSON Exception while using JRJC

This is my code:


private  static  final  String JIRA_URL  = "";

private  static  final  String JIRA_ADMIN_USERNAME  = "admin";

private  static  final  String JIRA_ADMIN_PASSWORD  = "admin";

 JiraRestClientFactory factory = new  AsynchronousJiraRestClientFactory();

 URI uri = new  URI(JIRA_URL );

JiraRestClient client = factory.createWithBasicHttpAuthentication(uri,


Promise<User> promise = client.getUserClient().getUser(mohan_venkatesan@infosys.com);

User user = promise.claim();

I am getting error as:

Exception in thread "main"

I'm not asking about your JIRA license. I am asking about your payload. What is the content you are sending to JIRA.
