Remove User Site Access via API

Srecko Anzic May 19, 2021

How to trigger the switch “Has access on site” via API in Administration > Users > User details in Access section?

We want to disable certain users access but still want to keep the user disabled in the system for next 90days(as per our policy) and in order to reassign users issues,filters… before we delete the user.

I referred to JIRA Cloud Developer REST API documentation.

I tried:
$url = “JIRA_url/user?accountId=yyy”
$body = @{
active = “False”
Invoke-RestMethod -Method PUT -Uri $url -Body $body

I simplified the code above to make it easier. I got the error:
Invoke-RestMethod : The remote server returned an error: (405) Method Not Allowed

Hi, removing a user's site access is the same thing as removing the default application group that's providing the site access. So what you should do is to remove the group that has the application access, that will remove the site access from the user.
