REFUSED_STREAM (err 7) occurs when using REST API to create JIRA issue

Below error is responded to the shell when I executed the command line to create JIRA issue using REST API.


What does that mean ?
What should I check more in order to create issue without error ?
The command is just copied from the tutorial page and I modified it with my project information.

For some reason curl is using HTTP/2. I don't think the Tomcat version supplied with JIRA supports that. Try adding the --http1.1 command line option. 

Thank you for the comment.

Response is changed, but I still don't get an expected result and I don't know what that means.


Your URL is incorrect - the server return 404. Are you sure you have "/jira" in the context path? Use the "-v" option for CURL to see verbose logs.

You are correct.   I finally got that resolved after removing "/jira" from ~/jira/rest/api/2/issue. I got confused because the tutorial page that contains "/jira".

But most of all --http1.1 is also really helpful. It seems that it is required when sending request using curl. Thank you so much.

Cool, glad to help. There is an interesting excerpt in the cURL documentation that explains what you see:

Since 7.47.0, the curl tool enables HTTP/2 by default for HTTPS connections.
