Trouble connecting to JIRA instance using JIRA-Python

I am trying to connect to connect to my JIRA cloud instance using JIRA-Python. The following code worked for me at at first:

server = {'server': myServerAddress}
jira = JIRA(server, basic_auth = (myusername, mypass))

 I was able to connect to both my local instance and the clound instance using this code previously. However, when I run the same exact code now, I get the error:

MissingSchema: Invalid URL 'https:/': No schema supplied. Perhaps you meant http://https:/

It might be that something about my instance that has changed, but I'm at a loss for what it could be. Does anyone have any insight as to what could be causing this?

It looks like you are missing a / from the url - https://

Wow, what a dumb error on my part. Thanks Nic!
