The user has been created OK, but when i try to login, give me an error that the password is wrong.

Somebody can help me ?

Are you using JIRA Cloud or Server? 

Also, can you copy the REST request body? 

 

Thanks,
Dario

Hi, i am using JIRA Cloud.

 

curl -i -X POST https://XXXXX.atlassian.net/rest/api/2/user -H'Content-type: application/json' -H'Accept: application/json' -uEMAIL:SENHA -d' { "emailAddress": "algumemail@gmail.com", "name": "XXXX", "password": "XXXX", "displayName": "XXXX XXXX"  }'

If you use Cloud then this is expected. As written in the User management REST API changes in JIRA Cloud KB article for the rest/api/2/user endpoint:

"Passwords included in the request payload will always be ignored"

 

This is because the user accounts are now managed using Atlassian Accounts (id.atlassian.com).
