How can we add users,groups and permissions in JIRA using API

we need to migrate the users and user permissions from other system to JIRA

Is there any option to post these data to JIRA through API.

Hi Prasanthi,

In order for this to work the external system would need to have a webhooks mechanism to make calls to JIRA to access the endpoint and retrieve the users, parse that data and format it into JSON to add to the payload.

You can create users, groups, etc. via the REST API and add the users to those groups.  Here are the resources for the REST API in JIRA:

JIRA 7.5.1 REST API Reference

JIRA Cloud REST API Reference
