Describe the enhancement and the motivation for it.

We have a requirement to be able to create Super User in Review Board through the API’s .
We have a Review Board API which allows us to create a User in review board but it doesn’t allow us to make the user a super user.
Here’s the API link below.

Would you consider to add two more parameters in the above API, is_staff & is_superuser, so that a super user could be created directly via APIs ?

As a temporary measure , we have a python script to achieve the desired functionality.

This is used during remote installation/configuration and to add/modify user via the API.

What operating system are you using? What browser?
