About this task

Use the public REST API to deactivate users when they leave your company.


  1. Create an API token from the portal:
    1. Go to Profile preferences > PERSONAL ACCESS TOKENS.
    2. Click ADD TOKEN.
    3. Enter a name for the token and click GENERATE.
    4. Copy the generated token and paste it somewhere secure.
  2. Find the account name of the user to deactivate in Account & Subscription > ACCOUNT.
  3. Find the user name of the user to deactivate. From Talend Management Console, go to USERS and copy the login of the user.
  4. Use the information from the previous steps to write your request. For example, using a curl request:
    curl -v -X POST 
    --header "Authorization: Bearer <token_value>" 
    --header "Content-Type: application/json" 
    -d '{ "accountName": "<account_name>", "userName": "<user_name>" }' 

    Note that you must use a POST method, and the two headers are mandatory.
