How to change a user activity status by REST API?

I've used json {"active": "false"} or {"active": false} to PUT a value. It responds: "" while GET gives the current {"active": true}.

According to the documentation, PUT requests against the User entity are in "experimental" mode, and it does not even appear to support that particular field. From the documentation...

PUT (experimental)


Modify user. The "value" fields present will override the existing value. Fields skipped in request will not be changed.

acceptable request representations:
  • application/json<abbr title="{} "></abbr> [collapse]

    { "name": "eddie", "emailAddress": "", "displayName": "Eddie of Atlassian" }

Thank you, Geoffrey. I suspected it but wanted a confirmation that everything is correct from my side.
