command for user removal from Spotfire group/s

I'm aware about enable-user and demote-admin command, our requirement is to remove user access through command i.e. remove user from one specific Spotfire group except everyone group.

We have NTLM authentication with LDAP and every quarter we have to manually remove each inactive use from all Spotfire groups except everyone group. We are looking for a workaround in which we can remove bulk user's access i.e. all inactive users belongs to everyone Spotfire group only.

Implemented in 12.2

    I'm happy to announce that this feature has been implemented in Spotfire 12.2.

    For more details see the What's new in 12.2 page.

    For a complete description of all new features, changes in functionality and how customers can upgrade/migrate to this version, see release notes and product documentation.

    This can be done via the Web Services API which you can then code to have a simple command line program you can execute any time you want:

    It could also be done by removing the relevant user ID from the GROUP_MEMBERS table. We do data updates to the Spotfire Admin database ourselves and never had an issue with it. 

    So do it properly via the API or do it dirty via SQL but either way this idea is a non-starter since they are ways to do this.
