For a given userid , is there a way to remove all the group membership through api ?

Presently we have an api to remove user's group membership for a given group name but is there a way to remove membership for a given user ? This is especially required when you are automated 'deactivating users' but challenge lies in removing group membership. Without doing this , user would still appear in other atlassian tools group and I'm trying to eliminate this. Please suggest.

@Sachin RamaprasadTake a look at this API -

I think this is incorrectly documented, it removes user from multiple group.

@DPK J  , thanks for your response.


I tried this in two methods. First with using application credentials and then with local admin credentials. I got 401 & 404 error respectively.

Does the admin call works on crowd server ?

@Sachin Ramaprasadthey work, but not able to see how you got 401 or 404 response.

404 implies page does not exists.

From the above rest api doc, 401 is when user doesn't have permission to execute the operation and 404 is when user doesn't exist. In my case , both are invalid response as I'm using correct application and i have used crowd admin credentials.

Could you send me the query how you are using it in curl ? (feel free to exclude credentials)

@Sachin Ramaprasad  I need to search for this, but I will get back to you.
