xsrf check failed when create jira ticket via rest api

I have a web application built with angular 8 , I am trying to use http post to call JIRA rest API to create an issue from my application, when I use http get, i can successfully get the issue from JIRA api, but post method always give error: XSRF check failed even I set header "X-Atlassian-Token" as 'no-check'.

Even tried to set "jira.xsrf.enabled" as false in

I am using Basic authentication as I am trying to use bot to create jira issue.

Hi, I know this is a very old issue but I just stumbled upon this problem as well and I thought I might be able to help people with the same issue. In our case, there were two possible solutions. 

- Change User Agents Header (Not possible as far as I know in chrome)

- Whitelist/Allowlist the origin domain in Jira. When you send a request to the Jira API your browser automatically populates the "origin" header. You need to add that value to the whitelist/allowlist in Jira. -> See here Configuring the allowlist | Jira | Atlassian Documentation
Type "Domain" should work.


See the issue documented by Atlassian:

REST API calls with a browser User-Agent header may fail CSRF checks | Jira | Atlassian Documentation

Hi @wenting liu ,

Based on this documentation you need to add a header like so.

X-Atlassian-Token: no-check
