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: "error.no.value.found.to.be.changed" 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...

https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/6.2.4/#d2e4551

PUT (experimental)

<h6>/rest/api/2/user?username&key</h6>

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

<h6>
acceptable request representations:
</h6>
  • application/json<abbr title="{http://research.sun.com/wadl/2006/10} "></abbr> [collapse]

    <h6>Example</h6>
    { "name": "eddie", "emailAddress": "eddie@atlassian.com", "displayName": "Eddie of Atlassian" }

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