      Problem Definition

      It is very nice to be able to create new users via the API so that you can easily handle new hire employees, but the same should be true for employees that leave.

      Suggested Solution

      It would be good to be able to disable them via the API as well. For larger companies with lots of churn this can be very useful.

      Currently when trying to disable a bunch of old users via the API using the /rest/api/2/user endpoint via PUT:

      { "username": "abbasm", "active": false }

      "errorMessages": [
      "errors": {}


      No workaround
