User administration

In order to create a new user go inside JIRA to “Options / User management / Create user” (you find “options” in the right top position of the screen).

Now you see a “Create new user” form where you can enter user data.

Enter our Email-Address 1, our Full name 2, an Username 3 and choose a Password 4. If you create an account for another user, you can leave the field “Password” empty and set an hook at “Send notification email” 5. Then a password is generated automatically for the first login and send to the Email-Address, afterwards the passwort can be adjusted individually.
Press “Create user”6 to create a new user.
