JIRA API Send Email

I’m currently using the python JIRA to create issues. I want to be able to send an email to specific email addresses after the issue is created. Here is the solution I tried but it doesn’t to work.

jira = JIRA(options,basic_auth=('username@email.com','password'))jira.email_user('test@email.com', 'test email body', title='JIRA Notification')

But the request to email_user gives me a 404 error. “Oops, you’ve found a dead link”. Anyone know an alternate way to send a custom email to a specified email address when a jira issue is created? I would prefer to do this through JIRA Rest API.
