How to create users programmatically?

Hi @Ollie Guan , appreciate your response. I'm working on Confluence Server, not Jira Cloud.

Hi @Vikrant Yadav , thanks for replying. I'll check out the links

Hi @Vikrant Yadav , it seems that the first link that you provided has already been deprecated and the REST API documentation doesn't have a method of creating new users, just getting existing users

Yes , you are right. I have just double checked , create user API is not available for confluence in latest api doc. 
Unfortunately you have to create users manually.

Hello Chong Jing Hong,

Consider using a scripting solution as found on the Atlassian Marketplace.

If you are using Power Scripts, you can do so using the admCreateUser() routine. For example (from the documentation):

Due to Confluence Cloud security features, you may need to open the documentation in incognito mode or by logging out of Confluence.

Please note that I am a product engineer for Power Scripts and that I work for Anova Apps (Appfire).
