We would like to add users by using our onboarding solution and stop adding them manually.

Hello, currently the REST-API is still under development and not the amount methods is still not as high as the SOAP-API provides.

Currently there is no API for REST to add users (here is the latest REST-API) but you can do it with SOAP (look here under UserManagement): void addUser(String token, User user, String password) - add a new user with the given password.

alternative you can write your own REST-API

hope this is what you were asking for :)

Perfect, just what I needed :)

Hi.

Yes, you can add users throug the API. Here you have a link to the section in the documentation: https://developer.atlassian.com/display/CONFDEV/Confluence+XML-RPC+and+SOAP+APIs

There is a section for user management.

Excellent, thanks

REST is already enabled by default. For more information on the usage, see https://developer.atlassian.com/display/JIRADEV/JIRA+Remote+API+Reference
