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 :)


Yes, you can add users throug the API. Here you have a link to the section in the documentation:

There is a section for user management.

Excellent, thanks

REST is already enabled by default. For more information on the usage, see
