Deleting a user in Fisheye/Crucible via the REST API

Hi,

It is possible to delete a user from Fisheye/Crucible via the admin interface. If the given user has one or more active reviews you will get a warning before finally clicking delete.

When using the rest interface: http://codereview/rest-service-fecru/admin/users/{username}

then the user is deleted without any warning.

I have tried with these ones to find reviews for a user:
http://codereview/rest-service/reviews-v1/filter/details?author=bola&states=Draft,Approval,Review,Summarize,Unknown

http://codereview/rest-service/reviews-v1/filter/details?moderator=bola&states=Draft,Approval,Review,Summarize,Unknown

http://codereview/rest-service/reviews-v1/filter/details?creator=bola&states=Draft,Approval,Review,Summarize,Unknown

http://codereview/rest-service/reviews-v1/filter/details?reviewer=bola&states=Draft,Approval,Review,Summarize,Unknown

If one of the above returns data the user should not be deleted.

Is it possible to use the Fisheye/Crucible REST API to find out if a user has active reviews in a more simple way ?

Hi Claus,

You can use the same approach as you're using to verify whether there are reviews or not for a given user, but you can do it all in a single query by using the orRoles parameter set to true. This is one of the parameters that can be used in the /rest-service/reviews-v1/filter/details function, and by setting it to true you can put all the roles on the same request, and the concatenator between them will be read as OR, so you could have a request like the following:

http://codereview/rest-service/reviews-v1/filter/details?author=bola&moderator=bola&creator=bola&reviewer=bola&orRoles=true&states=Draft,Approval,Review,Summarize,Unknown
