I need to create automation to create guest account and grant the guest acocunt access to certain confluence space. based on what i know, there is no (Jira) automation action that can does that. The only possible way which i can think of is to use REST API. But i coudn't find the REST APIs to do it. Does anyone knows? Thanks.

Hello @Low Aik Fung 

You haven't said if you are using CLOUD or SERVER / DC editions of those products. In either case, there is nothing in Jira's REST APIs that will create accounts in Confluence.

If you are using CLOUD, then the Cloud Admin REST APIs can be used to provision and manage users at the organisational level for all products.

Hi @David Bakkers ,

Thanks so much for the response. I am using CLOUD edition. Understand that REST APIs can be used to provision user account but I couldn't figure out how it can provision guest account. Or is it just that it guest account couldn't be provision using REST API. If you know know to do it, please let me know. Thanks!

I did let you know... use the Cloud Admin REST APIs. That's how you do it.

ALL account types, including guests, can be provisioned using those endpoints.
