Import users to JIRA with LDAP authentication possible?

We need to import users (app 200 users at least) and we have found Jelly scripts :)

But there is no choice to set what "kind of " user, so I am thinking if it is possible to use this and get that type of account. With the LDAP Authentication that is.

<JiraJelly xmlns:jira="jelly:com.atlassian.jira.jelly.JiraTagLib">

<jira:CreateUser username="new-user"password="password"confirm="password"

fullname="Full name"email=""/>

<jira:CreateUser username="new-user" password="password" confirm="password"

fullname="Full name" email=""/>


Perhaps thera are other ways to do this? I would be greatful to get input here.

Hi Susanne,

I believe the other option for doing this would be to import them using the JIRA Command Line Interface plugin, which is a commercial plugin but you can evaluate it for free, (although you may well find it's so useful you purchase it for future tasks also). However, you can read about importing users using the JIRA CLI plugin here:

All the best,

Thanks, I will adwise my client to do this.
