REST API - Send email on user create

According to the POST documentation for "/rest/api/2/user", it says "By default created user will not be notified with email." but doesn't give the parameter you're supposed to use if you do want the user to be notified. Any idea on what you're supposed to use? Thanks!

The correct property to set seems to be notification: "true"

But yes, it's a shame that this isn't in the example.

That was it! Thanks, Chris!

Does notification attribute work? I couldn't make it. I do get notifications when creating through ui..

I know this question is old but I stumbled accross it today.

I can confirm that it works with Jira 7.9.2.

Here is my example:

"name": "j.doe",
"emailAddress": "",
"displayName": "John Doe",
"applicationKeys": [
"notification" : true
