REST works fine on Cloud, so it must be something in your code.  What are you doing and what is the error?


I am trying to create a user and the same code works for my jira server but when tried to do the same on cloud instance it fails with "internal server error" , I am using name,password,emailAddress,displayName , am i missing something

I don't know. What's the difference between Cloud and your server?

{"errorMessages":["Cannot add user. 'charlie1' does not exist"],"errors":{}} i am getting this error. I dont know how to proceed

That's telling you that a user called charlie1 is not present on Cloud. Check your used ids. Also, you haven't explained *what* you're trying to do, or how.

I corrected it. Now its working. Thanks Nic :)
