Can I run a CLI script to find//add/remove Jira jira/confluence users vs removing them from the GUI admin pages?


1 answer

Hi Keith,

You could probably use the getUserList CLI action to search for users to generate a CSV file and then removeUser with runFromCSV to remove them.


I use the latest Jira CLI ver 6.7.1 and I got an error when tried to removeUser CLI.

Here is the error:

Remote error: User is not authorized to perform the request. Response code: 401

I have verified the account has the correct password and has the admin right.
