Create user without email address

Is the only way (in Jira Software or JSM) to create a user to invite them? I just want to create a Test User with no corresponding email address.

Can't you just use a dummy address? something like

Of course that makes it impossible to test any functionality regarding notifications but if your goal is to leave that empty anyways I don't see where the problem is. Certainly not a road blocker ;)

I could. But I am not the IT guy and have to go through hoops to have them create a functioning email address for me. So I was hoping to eliminate (at least for now) that step. If you're telling me that no, I must have a working email address associated with each user so be it.

No, I'm not saying that.

I'm saying that to register a user you need to provide an email but I've never said WORKING email.

You could ask your IT guy to use whatever text you fancy the most :)


Ok. But since the only way to add a user is by invitation, then that invitation has to go to a working email. Am I missing something?

When you (or the IT guy) create a new user you dont necessarily have to send him an invitation.

You coud ask you IT guy to create a test user with a dummy account and just have him send you the user/pass of that test user to your real emal.

Right,  ok. Thanks.
