I want to remove all inactive watchers from all issues but cant really find a way to do this.
The filter below is possible to use to show all issues that has inactive users but I cant find a way to remove the inactive users from the issues:
watcher in inactiveUsers()
Does anyone have a clue how to do it?
Thanks in advance,
What is the problem you are trying to solve by removing inactive watchers?
Just clutter? Because inactive users should not be receiving emails even if they're a watcher (and notification schemes are set up properly).
The only way I could think of to do this would be to script it using the REST API. You'd have to search for relevant issues, then get the list of watchers for each (individually), then remove the inactives. This would be a fairly intensive script depending on the number of issues. I wouldn't recommend doing this.
@Josh Steckler - Thank you for your answer.
The problem was actually that inactive users recieved notifications because they were watchers. The reason was that we had nestled groups so even if the user were inactive the application access were somehow open. After removing all groups from the user the problem was solved.
Thanks once again.
