Automatic verification of new members is not allowed - API Error

We are a managed service provider attempting to use automation to provision user access to accounts. Unfortunately for us when giving a user access this sends an email to them to accept the invitation. This can become problematic as we add new users and they are suddenly met with a barrage of emails to accept membership to every account we manage. In the API documentation it states that an optional “status” parameter can be passed, with a value like “accepted” which would presumably bypass this issue, (Cloudflare API v4 Documentation), however when POSTing with that status, I am met with the error “Automatic verification of new members is not allowed”. I am confused as to why this param was in the documentation. Can this be done, or are we stuck in the situation of having a user login and accept each individual account?
