Can I use curl to add users and their settings into Stash uses LDAP

I want to be able to add users with their login ID, name, and email within Stash but with their user ID (login ID) I want Stash to be able to pick them up.  I found a curl script that show example but I don't want to use any password since using LDAP.  Do I need to indicate LDAP authentication in the script?  What do I need to modify in the script for this to work?

curl -H "Content-Type:application/json" -H "Accept:application/json" --user admin:admin -X POST 'http://localhost:7990/rest/api/1.0/admin/users?name=testuser4&password=testuser4&displayName=Test%20User%204&'

If you're using LDAP (and have configured your LDAP server as a User Directory following something like, then you most likely don't need to hit the users endpoint to create a user - the user is already available. You probably just need to grant them the LICENSED_USER permission -

William, make sure that you have this "LDAP" directory in the first priority in creating users. You can find it in the path below.
