Removing multiple apps from multiple users

We need to do a major clean up of apps from people's okta accounts.  They were assigned manually (and individually) over the past years.   We'd like to re-assign apps using groups now.

Is there a way to remove apps from people's accounts programmatically or in bulk?  Doing them one at a time is horrendously slow.

Hello Faisal,

If you would like to bulk remove users from an App you can do so via the API, unfortunately there currently is not a way to bulk remove users via the GUI. To get started with our API please see the links below:
