User accountType documentation

Hello, I am using /user/search API call to gel all my users and I am getting accountType property (“accountType”: “atlassian” or “accountType”: “app”) but I can’t find anywhere in the documentation whether these are the only 2 types that exist or there are more. Where can this be found ?
Also, what do they really mean ? Are the users with “atlassian” regular users (persons) and “app”, as the name says, only application users ?
Thanks in advance.
