Unsupported Media type error's resolution gives preflight error. Edited

I am very new to JIRA and ajax in general. I am trying to create an issue, and here is my code for it:

url: "https://jira.website.com/rest/api/2/issue",
dataType: "JSON",
headers: {
username: "user",
password: "password",
contentType: "application/json",
"summary": "This is a trial for JIRA integration",
"description": "JIRA integration trial",
success: function(){
console.log("issue logged");

when I change content-type to application/json I get Response for preflight has invalid HTTP status code 403 error. But when I have the content-type as application/x-www-form-urlencoded, I get unsupported media type error. I apologize if this is a duplicate question.
Thank you :)
