Jira Integration Error


Getting an error when activating the project field in configuration for JIRA integration.

Plugin “Jira_REST” returned an error: Invalid HTTP code (401). Please check your user/password and that the REST API is enabled in Jira.

Turning Project Field off shows the JIRA enter Defect Page however Issue type is greyed out.

Please assist.



Thanks for your posting. This can either be a permission error (in the sense that the configured user doesn’t have access to a project) or an authentication issue. Could you please try to use a different user for the integration?
