Do not send email when creating new user

Currently in JIRA when I create new user, it sends out email, is there any setting we can control this behavior?

I do not want JIRA to send email for every new user.

we use REST API to create user, can we control sending email?

If you are using the USER end point ( then no e-mail should be sent:

Create user. By default created user will not be notified with email. If password field is not set then password will be randomly generated.
