Is there a RESTful API call that allows me to change the application rights for a given user? I need to strip Confluence from a sizable number of users, but doing it via a user-interactive web interface is time-consuming and inefficient.
I tried to pull the data on a given user (myself) using http://myinstance.jira.com/rest/api/latest/username?[myuserID] - but it keeps asking for a key, and I have no idea what it's asking for; I figured maybe I could update the "active" property referenced in https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/latest/#idp1247088 (and set it to "false"), but I can't seem to get to that data...and I'm not sure that would work anyway.
This is similar to the question asked here: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/147154/jira-rest-api-create-and-update-users-and-groups
As far as I'm aware, the REST API for Confluence/JIRA only allows you to GET information about a given user, you are not able to actually modify any properties of a user via REST. This is possible using other methods however (i.e. Bob Swift's CLI tool or via the SOAP/XML-RPC API).
