Making property active through API
The API Documentation states: “Newly created properties will start out inactive and can be activated from within your account.”
The update property API also doesn’t list “active” as a property that can be set.
Is this just an error in the documentation? Or is it not possible to change the active status using the API?

It is not possible to activate properties via API; we require users to activate properties in the MyVR app. This is because activating properties often requires MyVR users to purchase additional property licenses. If properties could be activated via API, it would be too easy to accidentally purchase additional property licenses without realizing that additional charges are being added to one’s account.
In other words, we do not allow the purchase of property licenses via API to avoid accidental, automatic purchases.
