Can't add users to crowd with rest API, getting Internal Server Error 500

Basel I'm New Here Apr 14, 2022
import java.util.Base64

URL url = new URL(http://crowd:8095/crowd/rest/usermanagement/1/user

def password = "password"
def username = "username"
def userpass = username + ":" + password
def basicAuth = "Basic:" + new String(Base64.getEncoder().encode(userpass.getBytes())

con.setRequestProperty("Authorization", basicAuth)
con.setRequestProperty(Content-Type", application/json; utf-8)
con.setRequestProperty("Accept", aplication/json)
con.setRequestProperty("X-Atlassian-Token", "no-check")

def body = "{\"name\": \"sampleuser\",\"password\":\"secret\",\"first-name\":\"sample\",\"last-name\":\"user\",\"display-name\":\"Sample User\",\"email\":\"\"}"

OutputStream os = con.getOutputStream()
byte[] input = body.getBytes("utf-8")

I've written the script as above, which should add a user crowd. However, when it runs I get response code 500 "Internal Server Error".
Any help would be appreciated thanks :)

issue resolved. I replaced the body to 

def body = "{\"name\":\"sampleuser\",\"password\":{\"value\":\"secret\"},\"active\":true,\"first-name\":\"Sample\",\"last-name\":\"User\",\"display-name\":\"SampleUser\",\"email\":\"\"}"
