Jira REST API: How to get all inactive users

How can I get all inactive users with the JIRA REST API?

The /rest/api/2/user call requires a user name rather than letting an empty user name result in all the users.

The /rest/api/2/user/search also requires a username. Does this accept a regex like .* or something similar to specify all users?

How can I get all the users?

It doesn't appear the API supports just a query for all, at least, not directly as it doesn't support a regex value.

The 'username' parameter does search the email address. If all accounts are within your company, then all emails should have the same domain, which a search on that would return everyone. You could also just use ".com", and repeat for all the ones existing in your instance.

If this isn't an option, you could use the Group endpoint if all the users are assigned groups when added into Bitbucket.

Thanks for the suggestion. The search seems to only look at the email up to the @. I searched for com and the only return was 1 user that happened to have com in his name. It did not search the domain.

This was an excellent suggestion but it doesn't seem to work.

That is odd. Having just "com" works for me in my instance.
