Hi Sunitha,

It sounds like you are using Jira Server and not Jira Cloud.

On the Cloud side, we have removed this functionality for security purposes:

JIRA Cloud os_username and os_password embedded in URL no longer available

This functionality still exists on Jira Server, but will be removed soon due to the security risks it poses.

A better approach would be to use the Jira REST API:
