Email check when user creation - how to?

Hi Everyone,

we create users by a jelly script (soon by groovy) and in these cases we create bulk of them. It happens many times that we already have a user in our database and we create it once again. Is there a code snippet which checks whether an email address already registered in our DB and if yes, the user will not be created or JIRA warns us?

In Groovy you can simply use getUserByEmail method.

import com.atlassian.crowd.embedded.api.User;
import com.atlassian.jira.user.UserUtils;

String emailAddress='';
User user = UserUtils.getUserByEmail(emailAddress);
if (user==null){
  //create users here

Really? JIRA allows you to re-use a username?
