Hi @goutam chalkikar 

Postman should work if you've entered everything correctly, I fairly often use it successfully.

So just to check a few things :

  • You need to be using your Jira e-mail address and API token for authentication
  • The e-mail address you use should be the same one that was used to generate the token
  • The authentication type must be Basic


I notice that you have // before the word rest in your URL, it should only be one /
