Bulk update board users and roles

POST /io/board/access

Bulk update board users and roles.

Warning: this endpoint can be destructive to user assignments and user subscriptions. If you reduce a user's role to boardReader or none, they will be unassigned from cards on the targeted boards. If you reduce a user's role to none they will be both unassigned and lose any of their subscriptions to changes on cards, lanes, and boards.

Note: You can POST to /io/board/access/validate to test without making changes.
