Set default settings for new users

We use the Mattermost API to create users.

We really need the default setting for email notifications for new users to be OFF, so they don’t get emails. But we want users to be able to change it to on if they like.

The API login we use to create these users is not an admin.

We used to set notify_props: { email: false, comments: “any” } in the data passed to the user create call, and that worked. But it doesn’t work now.

A complete solution to this problem would be to allow the administrator to set all the default settings for users (a sort of template), so that all new users get the settings from the template, but can change them later.
