Can you do user creation and sync with Active Directory?



IS it possible to have a form and have fields that users enter in the details so it creates a user in Active Directory?

Hi @Harry Bob 

This is not possible. Only administrators are able to create users in Jira. 

If you have added a Read & Write AD directory to Jira, then Administrators can create users from Jira Users page to the Active Directory. 


For more details, please refer to these articles:

Hi Harry,

In order for users to fill up the user details and create accounts on AD or LDAP, you can do this through following ways,

  • Create a user form containing fields like (user name, email, full name and password). You may check Run Self Services app for this. 
  • You might require Run CLI actions app for doing CLI actions on behalf the administrator
  • The prerequisite is, your confluence admin must create LDAP directory in confluence with Read / Write mode (directory order should be first)

Typical form should look like this,
