Can I add a user without him having visited the JIRA server/application?


My team is adding users through a custom built AMS. When it comes to JIRA, we don't seen to be able to add the user without her/him having visited the JIRA application before adding him. Is there any updates that makes this possible, solely by API? We've currently updated to 8.8.1 but can't find an easy way...

Is there a REST endpoint which is exposed for adding user to Jira?

Hi @Jesper Karlsson,

First of all, you should find a way to integrate the custom-built AMS to Jira and let the integration does the syncing automatically. 

For the REST API to create users in Jira, here you go; POST /rest/api/2/user.


Thanks Moga,

There is a label saying "Experimental". Do you think it's stable enough for production or what does come with that label? Just that it will keep on evolving/changing or is it not 100% verified?

Normally, the "Experimental" flag will be there if the endpoints are new. Atlassian might change the REST API if there's any major flaw(bug) in it.
