Is it possible to reactivate deleted users using HIPCHAT REST API V2? Edited

I didn't find any method under Hipchat API V2 docs to reactivate deleted users. Is it possible using REST API V2?

I was able to successfully send a v2/user DELETE call to HipChat to deactivate a user, then reactivate the same user with a v2/user POST. I verified the user's active/deactivated status with the HipChat web interface to confirm that the calls were successful.

Additionally, the request body for the POST included a full response from a v2/user GET.

Here's a sample of the JSON body passed through the POST:

{
  "created": "2017-03-30T21:02:05+00:00",
  "email": "username@example.com",
  "group": {
    "id": 1,
    "links": {
      "self": "https://example.hipchat.com/v2/group/1"
    },
    "name": "Example"
  },
  "id": 4347,
  "is_deleted": false,
  "is_group_admin": false,
  "is_guest": false,
  "last_active": null,
  "links": {
    "self": "https://example.hipchat.com/v2/user/4347"
  },
  "mention_name": "ExampleMention",
  "name": "Example Name ",
  "photo_url": "https://example.hipchat.com/img/silhouette_125.png",
  "presence": null,
  "roles": [
    "user"
  ],
  "timezone": "UTC",
  "title": "",
  "version": "4POMLGPU",
  "xmpp_jid": "1_4347@chat.btf.hipchat.com"
}

Thanks Shayne! It works.
