Can the REST API be used to create/update/delete users?

0
I was looking through the JSON manual and I don't see any user related methods. We have SailPoint for our logical access/provisioning solution and it's preferred method for sending/receiving user payload info is via REST. Unfortunately, our previous methods for handling this all used SOAP. Has anyone altered users via REST or integrated with SailPoint?

    The new App Admin (11.4) uses REST calls to maintain users. Those calls could easily be sniffed using Chrome Developer Tools. However, those REST calls are not publicized as we reserve the right to change them each release. So, you can use them and be assured that they will do the right thing, but you'd want to verify that you are still calling them correctly after each upgrade.

    A second approach would be to use ModScript. ModScript is available in the URL context, so you could invoke it as you would invoke any other URL. I would not suggest Creating users with it, as you'd have to know for sure all the changes required in the DB to various tables in order to properly create a user. However, I'd think that you could disable/delete a user with it, and do certain updates that were straight forward (change a user's name, for instance).
