How to turn off email notification on user creation

Hello All,


I have a service running  to create user in JIRA from LDAP when a new user gets added to LDAP .

To create user I am using 

User user = userUtil.createUserNoNotification(userName, password,email, fullName)

As per the API createUserNoNotification method will not send any email to the newly created user but that is not happening .

Users are getting notification when their account is getting created .

I don't want the users to be notified .Please let me know if  there is a way to turn of email notification on new user account creation .

My JIRA version is JIRA v 6.1.6 and JIRA v 6.2.7

I ran into the same problem using CLI bulk import of users. 

I think i'll work around this by temp disabling outgoing emails, but prob this won't work for your case-by-case creation. 


PS: best to check whether this doesn't qualify as a bug & needs to be raised with JIRA support
