How to define User directory while creating user using script console

Hello Guys,

I am trying to create user in JIRA Internal Directory having ID 1L How can i define directory in Script.

I have tried to define it like :- def directoryId = 1L . But where to put in script so that user get  created in Internal directory instead of creating using default directory which in JIRA Delegated Authentication directory. 


import com.atlassian.jira.bc.user.UserService
import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor

// the username of the new user - needs to be lowercase and unique - required
final String userName = "user"

// The password for the new user - if empty a random password will be generated
final String password = "password"

// The email address for the new user - required
final String emailAddress = ""

// The display name for the new user - required
final String displayName = "New User"

//This display the directory
def directoryId = 1L

// notifications are sent by default, set to false to not send a notification
final boolean sendNotification = false

def loggedInUser = ComponentAccessor.jiraAuthenticationContext.loggedInUser
def userService = ComponentAccessor.getComponent(UserService)

def newCreateRequest = UserService.CreateUserRequest.withUserDetails(loggedInUser, userName, password, emailAddress, displayName)

def createValidationResult = userService.validateCreateUser(newCreateRequest)
assert createValidationResult.isValid() : createValidationResult.errorCollection

Hi @Vikrant Yadav ,

according to this documentation you should be able to do something like:

def newCreateRequest = UserService.CreateUserRequest
.withUserDetails(loggedInUser, userName, password, emailAddress, displayName)


Please try, thank you.
