When I am trying to use the same jiraIP using request.get method then it is working fine.

jira_query = 'filter%20in%20(' + filterNumber + ')' #Jira query which we will fetch me issues from that filter
final_url = jiraapi+ '/rest/api/latest/search?jql=' + jira_query #Final url to ping to

with requests.get(final_url, auth = (jira_username, jira_password)) as f:


Please help me with the above issue.Why it is not working with restAPI.

I notice in the error message you are getting the following URL :HTTP 404 url: http://"jiraip"/iss

How do you get this URL ? Are you using a custom context path for Jira ?

Make sure the "iss" part of the URI is correct.
