API to create users


(Tao Zhou) #1

Does Discourse have an API for the admin to 1) create lots of users, 2) set the users to subscribe to certain categories so that they can receive notifications for updates?

See docs.discourse.org for info on the API. TL;DR anything done in the web browser is an API call behind the scenes because we are a JavaScript app, not an old school 1999 HTML web page :wink:

You can easily achieve 1), for 2), you can try the invite API.

yes, I am sure you can do that.
