Hi,

I've read: http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Importing+Data+from+CSV

But I don't really want to import my data from the other system. I want to start fresh and clean. Can you help me understand how to import the users I had in the other system? Is that possible?

Thanks,

You should be able to add users through a jelly script.

You need to use create user tag

http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Jelly+Tags#JellyTags-jiraCreateUser

and add user to group tag

http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Jelly+Tags#JellyTags-jiraAddUserToGroup

These are links to Jira 5.0 documentation. If you have an earlier version of Jira, please check that documentation since the Jelly interface changed sometime during the 4.X releases.

JIRA Command Line Interface has support for adding users in a couple of ways. Also, there is a snapshot available for JCLI-251 that can be used to create the add user import script.
