List inactive users using a plugin


I'm writing a plugin to get some information from confluence. That information includes a list of all inactive (deleted) users that has written a comment on a specific space.

How to do that using the Confluence Plugin API?

I tried using the following managers, but all of them work only with active users:

  • SpaceManager
  • UserManager
  • SpacePermissionManager
  • PermissionManager

I really need some help here.

Thanks a lot.
