Unauthorized 401 error to admin user

I am now trying to use jira rest api. And I follow https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOCSPRINT/The+Simplest+Possible+JIRA+REST+Examples.

I already enable Remote API.

I have right to acces the project and also create issue.I created new issue and try to call from the jira rest api .When I call the rest api https://mycompany.atlassian.net/jira/rest/api/2/issue/APP-1.json from the browser, I get json reply .

But when I try to access using curl

curl -u User 2:password https://mycompany.atlassian.net/jira/rest/api/2/issue/APP-1.json, I get unauthorized 401 error.

My username includes whitespace like 'User 2'.Is this one cause that error?Can I use email instead of username?

My OS is Window7 32. could Anyone help me ,please?I really need help!

I found that the problem is whitespace .Anyone know how to pass username with white space to jira api?

Hi Seint,

You can try with a plus sign, like: User+2.

Best regards,
