REST API for Bluemix user management

REST is an industry standard that many use for automation, including Cisco. Bluemix currently uses the cf API but our automation team at Cisco only supports REST or SOAP. The lack of a useful REST API for user management is impeding our adoption of the product because we can't automate our user management of it. And with as many users as we have, automation is a requirement (and it's even a requirement from our Infosec people). I believe you will find this a benefit for many of your larger corporation customers.

    It would be good to see a utility tool to manage users, roles and account details for IBM cloud public. This is a must need for every new IBM client, planning or preparing themself to adopt IBM Cloud public.

    Have you looked at building scripts with the CLI as a temporary solution?
