Create disabled users?

I'm trying to programmatically create a few dummy users in Thingworx for a demo. I'm able to easily create them using EntityServices.CreateUser, but there doesn't seem to be a service to disable the created user either on EntityServices or on the User object itself. How can I accomplish that on release 5.4?

This will be available in the next release I believe.

I do not have older versions of TWX, but am able to create, disable and enable users using following snippets in Thingworx 7.1

// To create an user

var params = {

    password: <password> /* STRING */,

    name: <name> /* STRING */,

    description: <description> /* STRING */,

    tags: undefined /* TAGS */

};

Resources["EntityServices"].CreateUser(params);

// To disable an enabled user

Users[<username>].DisableUser();

// To enable a disabled user

Users[<username>].EnableUser();

True but it does not create the user as disabled. The user is created as "enabled" than you disable it.

By the way, how can I know if a user is disabled or enabled from within a service.  Is there a property I can check or a service like the one "IsEnabled" available for Things?

In Release 7.1, I see that it is possible to check as follows:

var enabled = Users[<username>].IsEnabled();

True, I see it now in 7.1

Thanks Sajid
