Batch removing users/groups from team folders (Irreversible operation)
The command does not (1) change access inheritance setting of any folders, (2) remove a group, (3) unshare a nested folder. For (3), that means the nested folder stays the same setting (e.g. shared link policy for the folder). This command is designed to be idempotent. You can safely retry if any errors happen on the operation. The command will not report an error to keep idempotence. For example, the command will not report an error like, (1) the member already lose access to the folder, (2) the folder is not found.
