Bulk Disable Users

With the changes to the Cloud Pricing I imagine we have a few others asking this quesiton.  Rather than manually disable 100's of users is there a way to bulk disable them?

Hi Robert,

Currently there is no option to bulk disable/delete users.  If you have an external user directory you can remove that directory which will effectively remove the users from your instance.

You can also take a look at the Communities post Solved: How do you bulk delete or deactivate users? One recommendation is an addon called User Deactivator for JIRA

One of our Partner Champions Bob Swift also stated the CLI add-on can perform bulk operations of this sort.



Workaround: Install this add-on in Google chrome browser. Do some excel tricks and generate the user profile URL for all the users to be off-boarded. (You can find ID for each user when you export users) Understand the JSON structure of the kantu add-on and generate JSON for the operations bringBrowsertoFront (opens google chrome browser), open (opens the URL supplied in JSON, click(clicks the toggle button in the user profile page). Tada
