401 http status code means Unauthorized. So you are trying to make a request without valid username or password or one of them is incorrect. Can you double check your credentials?


I`m sure that credentials are valid. We make others api calls using them

What is the response text other than status code? Sometimes user needs captcha entry, etc. Also you can try using "X-Atlassian-Token": "nocheck" as header while trying to make the request. But it's certain that 401 is Unauthorized code.
