Is there a way to list all users via REST API - Including the deactivated users?

A simple call such as

/usr/bin/curl -k -s -u admin:xxxxxx 'https://url/rest/api/2/user/search?username=a

Will return all users strating with the letter "a", but it doesn't inlcude those already deactivated.  is there a way that this can include the deactivated users?

To include deactivated users, you can use the boolean includeInactive=true.

However, you cannot list all users, see The comments include some workarounds.



Perfect, thanks
