Is there a way to create a new Confluence user with the rest API?
https://docs.atlassian.com/atlassian-confluence/REST/latest/#d3e193 appears to really only be about spaces and pages but nothing regarding user administration
You can create a user directly in the database:
Let me share an example of how to create one(new administrator user).
insert into cwd_user(id, user_name, lower_user_name, active, created_date, updated_date, first_name, lower_first_name, last_name, lower_last_name, display_name, lower_display_name, email_address, lower_email_address, directory_id, credential) values (1212121, 'admin', 'admin', 'T', '2009-11-26 17:42:08', '2009-11-26 17:42:08', 'A. D.', 'a. d.', 'Ministrator', 'ministrator', 'A. D. Ministrator', 'a. d. ministrator', 'firstname.lastname@example.org', 'email@example.com', (select id from cwd_directory where directory_name='Confluence Internal Directory'), 'x61Ey612Kl2gpFL56FT9weDnpSo4AV8j8+qx2AuTHdRyY036xxzTTrw10Wq3+4qQyB+XURPWx1ONxp3Y3pB37A=='); insert into user_mapping values ('2c9681954172cf560000000000000001', 'admin', 'admin');
insert into cwd_membership (id, parent_id, child_user_id) values (888888, (select id from cwd_group where group_name='confluence-users' and directory_id=(select id from cwd_directory where directory_name='Confluence Internal Directory')), 1212121); insert into cwd_membership (id, parent_id, child_user_id) values (999999, (select id from cwd_group where group_name='confluence-administrators' and directory_id=(select id from cwd_directory where directory_name='Confluence Internal Directory')), 1212121);
You can't use the REST API, because they haven't implemented it yet, but you can still use the older RPC API. It is used somewhat similarly to the REST API, but instead of giving it an HTTP verb (GET, POST, UPDATE, DELETE), you always send it a POST (and make sure that the content type is "application/json"). Here is some more information about what you can do with user administration:
