I am trying to create a user using java JIRA RPC SOAP client but i got this error !!

 faultString: com.atlassian.jira.rpc.exception.RemoteAuthenticationException: User not authenticated yet, or session timed out.

My code : 

private static RemoteUser createUser(JiraSoapService jiraSoapService,
			String authToken) throws RemoteException, RemoteException,
			RemoteException, RemotePermissionException,
			RemoteAuthenticationException, RemoteValidationException,
			MalformedURLException {
		RemoteUser remoteUser = jiraSoapService.createUser("token", "username",
				"password", "full name", "email");
		System.out.println("\tSuccessfully created user "

"token" should be the token that you get after logging in to JIRA using the "login" method.

What should I do to get the value of the "token" to pass it as a parameter to the new uSer ?!

Use the 'login' method to get the token.

thanks a lot !! :)
