Add new users

Working alone isn't much fun, so let's add some test users to your Jira Core Cloud site. You can add users directly, or allow new users to sign up themselves. In this step in the tutorial, you'll add three users directly to your site. 

Add a few users 

We'll be adding three users: Jason, Kate and Emma. You can add more or choose your own usernames if you like—just remember we'll be referring to these usernames later in the tutorials. You can always disable or delete any users you set up.

If you've logged out of your new Cloud site, log in with the administrator account you created.

  1. Go to  > Site administration
  2. Add Jason, Kate, and Emma (or your real teammates), and their email addresses
    If you're testing and your team uses Gmail, you can use email aliases like "" and "" to send the invitations to yourself.
  3. Click Create users

Usernames are not case sensitive; Emma can enter her username as Emma, emma, or even EmMA to log in to Jira Core. Passwords, on the other hand, are case sensitive.

Well done! You've added three new users to your Cloud site. Next, you'll learn how to manage access to your project with site and project permissions.
