Hi There,

I'd like to perform a
a) Bulk creation of users in RTC repository, with email address, jazzgroup and license permissions assigned
b) Bulk add users into a project area with particular roles

Is anyone familliiar with the steps to do this action?

Forgot to mention that we're looking for answers related to both 1) Tomcat server 2) WAS server

We have both instances running for our project.

There is no exposed mechanism via the API (that I found) to "give users a particular role".
The most common solution to this when we started was to add users to a Community team on a project, and notify the manager (or project admin) to "take things from there".
Because the folks in charge of account validation/access usually don't control people's roles within the teams. - the managers or team leads do that.  (separation of duties)

  For simple cases, you can also use the repotools -createUsers command to load tomcat-users when not connected to LDAP.

I dont know how you can achive licensing of those user but bulk import can be done.

Just add your users to JazzUser LDAP group. Jazz Team Server runs a nighly synch to synchronize Jazz Groups member to Jazz Environment. You can trigger it manually or change the frequency of those synch.

You can take a look at that link too:

If you're an IBMer, I've built a tool that does this. "Jazz Product User Bulk Add Tool".  Its internal to IBM and free for anyone to use.  It includes support for all products, project creation, adding users, adding admins, licensing, and putting users on teams, and into a bluegroup.  Ping me if you need access.  Unfortunately, at this time, its customized for internal use and not something that is packaged for users.


My tool does not do role mapping.  However, the Jazz API allows for that, and I've heard that they are working on a new GUI for bulk role mapping.

you can set a default license key on the Jazz Server  under License Key Management -  License Summary - Default Client Access License
