How to remove users from JIRA user list

We are using LDAP to synchronize our user list in JIRA with the 100 authorized users.  Someone wrote a faulty group filter, which added the entire company of 2000 employees to the list.  Even though the group filter is now fixed, the non-users remain on the list.  How do I remove the 1900 names from my user list?

I believe that at this point you have two options:

  1. Write a code to use JIRA API to bulk remove this users
  2. Use JIRA Command Line Interface to remove this users

Here's a documentation to better guide you on those process:
