Create a user

If an external authentication mechanism is used, the login name should match the login name in the external system. If you are using LDAP authentication, you should also update the LDAP mapping for the user.

The login name will be normalized to only contain alphanumeric characters or single hyphens. For example, if you send "octo_cat" as the login, a user named "octo-cat" will be created.

If the login name or email address is already associated with an account, the server will return a 422 response.
