JIRA - a way to creat 500 internal users?


Is there a way to create 500 internal JIRA users (bulk).

we don't have active directory, or other type of integration facility. Do we need to create them manually?

You can add the users from a csv file using JCLI Please find more information at https://studio.plugins.atlassian.com/wiki/display/JCLI/JIRA+Command+Line+Interface

Here is an example how an input csv file for addUserWithFile might look: http://hg.crowsoftware.com/jira-cli/src/debb94f28ce8/src/main/resources/examples/addUserWithFile.csv

I have JIRA 4.4, Is it supported?!

You can even use jelly scripts . here is an example . Documentation for enabling jelly and running jelly scripts is here .

This will work for 4.4

I'd like to see the Script Runner way of doing this

I wrote a small script which can create bulk users . This runs on the script console {code} import com.atlassian.jira.user.util.UserUtil import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor; def uu=ComponentAccessor.getUserUtil() uu.createUserNoNotification("testauto", "testauto", "testauto@test.com", "testauto") {code}

Hi Mizan could you share the complete code for this? Thanks!

Thank you, Mizan. It's perfect.
