Problem when creating JIRA object

I happen to update to JIRA package 0.50  for python yesterday, and the script isn't working any more. 

When I create the JIRA object, it gives the following error: 

File "/Path/", line 13, in __init__
self.jira = JIRA(options, basic_auth=(self.reporter['username'], self.reporter['password']))
File "/Path/venv/lib/python3.4/site-packages/jira/", line 261, in __init__
si = self.server_info()
File "Path/venv/lib/python3.4/site-packages/jira/", line 1617, in server_info
return self._get_json('serverInfo')
File "/Path/venv/lib/python3.4/site-packages/jira/", line 2036, in _get_json
r_json = json_loads(r)
File "Path/venv/lib/python3.4/site-packages/jira/", line 78, in json_loads
File "/Path/venv/lib/python3.4/site-packages/jira/", line 91, in raise_on_error
raise JIRAError(None, **kwargs)
jira.utils.JIRAError: JiraError HTTP None

where options holds 

options= {'server': self.base_url, 'verify':'False'}

and base_url = ''

then, when I set 

then the error moves forward to 

WARNING:root:[Errno 2] No such file or directory while doing GET [{'headers': {'X-Atlassian-Token': 'no-check', 'Content-Type': 'application/json', 'Connection': 'keep-alive', 'User-Agent': 'python-requests/2.7.0 CPython/3.4.1 Darwin/14.5.0', 'Accept-Encoding': 'gzip, deflate', 'Cache-Control': 'no-cache', 'Accept': '*/*'}, 'params': {'startAt': 0, 'expand': None, 'maxResults': 50, 'validateQuery': True, 'jql': 'project in (HELP, HELC)  and issuetype = Monitor', 'fields': []}}]

Coming the error

File "/Path/venv/lib/python3.4/site-packages/jira/", line 1587, in search_issues
resource = self._get_json('search', params=search_params)

So it seems like it cannot search issues.

thanks in advance!

Are you still having this problem @Fernando Lopez Aguilar?

Can you try upgrading your JIRA package to 1.0.3 and seeing if that makes any difference?


What version of JIRA are you running at
