Application permission denied when trying to create Confluence user with XML-RPC

I'm trying to create Confluence users for my OnDemand Confluence using XML-RPC and java. I'm able to login and to retrieve information about users, spaces and projects, but when trying to run the following code:

Map newUser = new HashMap();
            newUser.put("email", email);
            newUser.put("fullname", fullname);
            newUser.put("name", name);
            newUser.put("url", CONFLUENCE_URI + "/display/~" + name);
            
            client.execute("confluence2.addUser", new Object[]{token, newUser, password});

I get the following error: "Could not create new user 'testuser': com.atlassian.crowd.exception.ApplicationPermissionException:"

Is this not possible with Confluence OnDemand?

Hi,

Please make sure that you have (the user that you are using on XML-RPC) the necessary permissions to create users on your instance. Note that the users permissions are the same for API requests and UI.

Cheers!
