Hi @Ankush Sharma


Welcome to the community!.

Please see the below screenshots which shows how to use JIRA REST API in postman to authenticate and create issues in jira.



Header configuration:

Please see the page which shows more about JIRA REST API's


Also another method is to use Jira Command Line Interface (CLI) which provides Rich CLI client, Enhanced actions to create projects, issues in JIRA. Please see the Examples page which shows the different actions which can be performed using JIRA CLI

You haven't mentioned about the user Authentication Api. Please share a postman screenshot of the same like you did above

Hi @Ankush Sharma


You will be able to use the basic authentication and pass your credentials in the header of the REST call which you are making from Postman, please see the below screenshot for reference.
