Jira Server API Postman Configuration

I followed the instructions on with the sample java code. The sample java code saved a config file to



I am able to access using the java methods supplied in the documentation, but I'm having no such luck with Postman. I am either getting either:

  • oauth_problem=signature_method_rejected
  • oauth_problem=token_rejected

I think I may just have the config wrong in Postman. I have tried:

  • Postman: Consumer Key: consumer_key
  • Postman: Consumer Secret: private_key, secret
  • Postman: Request Token: both request_token, access_token
  • Postman Access Token: both request_token, access_token 




I've tried a number of combinations, so I am wondering if either I am missing something or if I am simply just putting the wrong values into the corresponding spots in Postman.

For those who come across this post in the future, I was never able to quite solve the issue with Postman, but I came across this post which was helpful:

And this python library helped quite a bit as well:

Put the Consumer key( the one that you entered in Applications Links when setting up the Application URL) and

oauth_token & oauth_secret in the Header section of the Postman call , keep the Authorisation Type as No Auth.


This worked for me.

I really struggled with this but finally made it work using authentication in Postman and coping data from the working Jira example application 


  • OAuth 1.0
  • Request headers
  • Signature method as RSA-SHA1
  • Consumer key from the example properties
  • Access token from example properties
  • Private key from the generated .pem file
  • Tick 'Encode the parameters in the ....' under Advanced settings

Just to let others know :-)

I ended up using the Jira python library and creating a oauth function in python:


def oauth():    
= None
with open('jira_privatekey.pem''r'as key_cert_file:
key_cert_data =    
= {
'key_cert': key_cert_data
return oauth_dict
