Update an existing user

Use the Update User Details API to update an existing user information in the Control Room.

Prerequisites

Edit Users permission
Users who have edit users permission can update a specific user details.
JSON Web Token (JWT)
All Control Room APIs require a JSON Web Token (JWT) to access the APIs. Generate an authentication token using the Authentication API. See Authentication API.
  • URL: http://<your_control_room_url>/v1/usermanagement/users/{ID}.

    Replace the content in the angle brackets with your Control Room URL.

  • Method: PUT.
  • Use the Swagger definition files installed with your Control Room to test the APIs. View the available Swagger APIs at: http://<your_control_room_url>/swagger/.
  • You can also use a REST client to complete this task.

Procedure

  1. Add an authentication token to the request header.
    Use the Authentication API to generate a JSON Web Token. See Authentication API.
  2. Select PUT as the method.
  3. In the request header, add an existing user ID you want to update. To find a user ID you want to update, execute the Search Users API.
