Unable to get metadata from Jira Edited

I am having problems getting the metadata from JIra in order to integrate with its ReST APIs.

We have a user that has basic auth credentials together with "Browse Projects" and "Create Issue" permissions. When invoking the endpoint:


We get the following response:

{    "expand""projects",    "projects": []}

According to the official documentation, we should get a list of projects together with their corresponding information.

It's worth noting that we have managed to create issues on a given project (with the known fields) but we can' t use custom fields as we lack the information about its internal identifiers (for which we need this meta data information).

How can we make this work?

When you try to call the URL, are you connected to Jira with a user which can, at least, browse one project?
