Do you execute that code from inside a plugin or you've just created a Java class and want to add users ?

If you're not inside a plugin this code will not work and you should consider creating users using the REST api through the Jira Java Rest Client

Also it's generraly a good practice to also include part of the exception when you ask a question, so it's visible exaclty where the exception is thrown
