Creating multiple users


We just purchased JIRA Core and JIRA Software.  Is there a way to set up multiple users in an efficient manner or do I have to set each user individually.

Please let me know

Solution A: Connect Jira to an LDAP server. There you can do mass creation.

Solution B: Use the API

curl -D- -u user:pass -X POST --data {"name":"user1","password":"12345678","emailAddress":"","displayName":"User One","applicationKeys":["jira-core"]} -H "Content-Type: application/json" http://servert:8080/rest/api/2/user/

 Wrap a bash shell script around to fire multiple creates.

The links to examples and API (user create).

Note: This API call is marked as experimental.

Thank you very much for your help.  This works.
