JIRA CLI RunFromCsv - Can this be used for uploading users and project roles

I am looking to do the equivalent of "addUserToGroupWithFile" but for adding multiple project roles to an existing user (and want to process this in bulk from a file).

Example: User1 for project ABC has the roles of administrators,users  (and the user already exists in JIRA).


  1. Is combining "Runfromcsv" with "addProjectRoleActors" an option? (Can you help with the syntax?)
  2. Are there other functions that I can readily use?

Will this work?

jira --action runFromCsv --common "--action addProjectRoleActors --project "PROJECTID" --role "users" --userId" --file sample.csv

runFromCsv is a general capability to run any actions. See this question for further discussions.
