Create user via REST api generates user_key, does not match user_name

Hi Community,

ver 8.5.3
Users are created with user_name and user_key having same value.
Changed only in case of conflict.
When using REST api, user_name in cwd_user table is “”,
then user_key in app_user is “jirauser12345”.

just wondering if I have missed something in request itself?

  "name": "techuser1",
  "emailAddress": "email@some.thing",
  "displayName": "techuser1, techuser1"


All new users are now created with an “anonymized” user key. See

Thanks David
I must have checked wrong line when created manual user.
I see that manual, LDAP, REST users are all created with auto
generated user_key.
Thank you for confirmation and link.
