My company using MFA , so i am unable to extract data using python jira library


I try to run the below code using the 

from atlassian import Jira

jira = Jira(url='',
password='123454' )
print (jira)
JQL = 'project = "ITAO" '
#JQL = 'project = "ITAO" AND status IN ("To Do", "In Progress") ORDER BY issuekey'
data = jira.jql(JQL)

Lines 2 and 3 end in commas for some reason

Yes, what Matt said about commas. Check that.

Also, you might not want to include your company's actual Jira server URL and the actual project key. If those are actually already obfuscated, then great!

Anyways, if your version of Jira is at least 8.14, then you should use Personal Access Tokens with the python jira library:

If you are not on that version or later, you will need to ask your Jira administrators for a local (non-MFA) service account specifically for your scripting needs.
