Hi there,

The error 404 may indicate that the requested resource is not found.

Since this is the case, things that we can try to check here is that:
- ensure that the Base URL is correctly configured (correct port number, and context path)
- ensure that the issue with the key SYNC-1 exists in JIRA
- ensure that the user MyUser is able to access SYNC-1 issue in JIRA (no permission issue)

Reference on the error code when getting an issue via REST:

I hope that the info above helps.
