Create users via Api, Experimental?

Hi Guys,

Looking at the documentation, create user via api it’s experimental. Someone knows if Atlassian will put stay that option

https://developer.atlassian.com/cloud/jira/platform/rest/v3/api-group-users/#api-group-users

Welcome to the Atlassian developer community, @FabioManzoni.

From the linked docs about POST /rest/api/3/user:

This resource is retained for legacy compatibility. As soon as a more suitable alternative is available this resource will be deprecated.

Which means we won’t be removing the experimental tag. Rather, there is still expected to be a new way to add users. My current recommendation is the Atlassian-wide user provisioning APIs, although that is not the formal replacement at this time.

That’s because this approach works in a much more indirect way to add users to Jira. The approach is based on a standard called System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) and requires that sources act as if they were user directories. Even after provisioning user and groups, there is not a direct way to add a user to Jira. Instead, products rely on group membership to decide if the user should be added. So, even with a level of automation, this approach still requires some up-front administrative configuration.
