i want to automate the run of the "rename user id" built in script. given i have 10 people to rename or merge, i don't want to click and submit the script via administration user interface 10 times. i want to create my own script that gets the 10 users as parameter and calls the built in script 10 times.
i think calling a given script should not be a problem, however i'm a groovy newby and cannot solve my problem on my own without further research.
There are two answers... there is an undocumented (currently) rest API where you can call any script via a rest request, if you have admin permissions. I'll give you code examples for both of these but they are ugly code just lifted from something I may have been once working on, not exemplars at all.
So here is an example for copying a project using REST: https://gist.github.com/jamieechlin/5195423
You can also call them from a groovy script. Here is a one-off script for merging users whose names differ only by case. The bit you need is in the loop at the bottom: https://gist.github.com/jamieechlin/5195431
You might need to look at the script source to get the parameter names.
Method 2 is probably a lot easier depending on context.
