      Description

      When a jira-report is configured to run against a private Jira installation that requires login credentials, if a user's password contains non URL-friendly characters, Jira authentication fails.
      For example my Jira user's password is:

      password#

      With this password Jira authentication fails.

      As a workaround I can use:

      password%23

      i.e. with the "#" URL-encoded and in this case, authentication works fine and the jira-report is produced.
      I suppose here that the password is included in the Jira Download of issues URL.
