Hi Francesco,

I have a use case where I need to add thousands or more users in a single request. i.e. bulk user creation.

Is it possible in Syncope ?

Bulk actions are available for the operations defined at [1] (see some samples at [2] under the "Delete several users at once" example) - which does not include create.

Instead of bulk creating thousand users via REST, I would rather suggest to rely on some external connector: which is the source for these users? Can't they be pulled from DB / LDAP / ...?

    Currently, I am evaluating syncope for our usage. I would need to
    do bulk user creation from REST. I started to create single user
    from REST client and it fails.

    From postman, I tried to create a user with below inputs. I get
    '400 Bad Request'.

    If there is anything wrong in the request, please correct me. Is
    all fields mandatory during user creation.

    POST -

    Basic Auth - admin/password

    Content-type: application/json



      "@class": "org.apache.syncope.common.lib.to.UserTO",

      "creator": "admin",

      "lastModifier": "admin",

      "key": "rest1",

      "type": "USER",

      "realm": "/",

      "status": "Active",

      "auxClasses": [],

      "plainAttrs": [],

      "derAttrs": [],

      "virAttrs": [],

      "resources": []


you should remove (not troublesome, just ignored):

* creator
* lastModifier
* key
* status

About what is mandatory, I can see there is no username.
Moreover, it depends on how you can your schemas and classes configured.

Please also take a look at logs to figure out what might go wrong.
