There is no option in JIRA to do that, but there are plugins out there that can. User Deactivator for JIRA is one, or you could use the REST API and create your own plugin/script for it.

Hi Mikael

It would be great if you can provide the link for REST API.

removeUser and updateUser with the deactivate parameter can be used. They are part of the JIRA Command Line Interface (CLI).
