Add multiples users to group

Hello Community!
I need some help with adding multiple users to a group.
When I send the request only one of the users is added.

What am I doing wrong?

Hi @Marina Vital 

I'm afraid this only works for a single user, if you have multiple users, we would need to make multiple calls

I used the api to add user to the group. it responded nothing and didn't add the user to the group. "get user from group api" works fine. accountId and group id are exported from jira. any idea?

Hey, @Marina Vital 


I, too, was in a similar predicament. Here's what I was able to do. 

I created a .sh script to add multiple users to a group. 


Here's my approach.

⚠️ These are already created users.

  1. Ensure you have admin access and create an API token. It takes a minute for it to process. Come back later. You'll get an email stating that your new API token was created successfully. 
  2. Using Confluence Teams and search by name. Then pull the accountID from the URL.
    1. i.e.,
    2. accountID = 612498b165129802006af619ef
  3. Export users to CSV. The .csv has a User ID column, which is the accountID. 
  4. Pull the accountIDs you need and paste them into some temp file. 
  5. Get your GroupID
    1. Admin Settings > Groups > Search for group/s > pull GroupID from URL
      1. i.e.,*/groups/9366eda7-cbde-41f6-8b6d-27fad9219e3c
      2. groupId = 9366eda7-cbde-41f6-8b6d-27fad9219e3c
  6. Now you input your data into the following script/s. 
    1. Your Domain
    2. groupID
    3. accountId/s
    4. your email from which you created your API token & your API token. 



# Define the API endpoint and group ID

# Define the user account IDs to be added

# Loop through the user account IDs and send a curl request for each
curl --request POST \
--url "$API_ENDPOINT" \
--user '<api_token>' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--data "{\"accountId\":\"$USER_ACCOUNT_ID\"}"


Next, you can check if it was successful by using the following curl command. 

curl --request GET \

  --url '{name}' \
  --user '<api_token>' \
  --header 'Accept: application/json' | jq .

If you need to get the name of your group, run this curl command: 

curl --request GET \ 

  --url '{id}' \
  --user '<api_token>' \
  --header 'Accept: application/json' | jq .
