I'm partially new to wordpress, I want to POST data from postman to wordpress as simple as {"title":"New Rest Post"} using Application Passwords for auth.

When trying on local wp (http) it works and create new post, but remotely or any wordpress domain (https) it shows the following msg:

  "code": "incorrect_password",
  "message": "The provided password is an invalid application password.",
  "data": {
    "status": 401

    You're sure it's not an invalid application password as per error message?
