I am new to Atlassian.
In Crowd, we have created a Directory (called it D), that is "Delegated authentication directory", and that is tied to our Microsoft Active Directory.

With password is being a required field, does it that only the users themselve can add themselve to D, and we as admin cannot add users?
Or there is a way to add users or import users from the Microsft Active Directory without knowing the users' password?
With a delegated directory the user is automatically added when they log in - you don't have to add them. With a connector directory the users are synchronized over in batches periodically.
