Is it possible for me to update the names of my community users through API if they are coming over through SSO without affecting the settings? I want to remove their last names.

Where am I?

In Tribe you can ask and answer questions and share your experience with others!

Hi,

You can definitely do it by following the usual process of updating a user. Here's where you can read more about the same- https://docs.tribe.so/#update-a-specific-user24

You need to send a PUT request to "https://YourCommunityURL/api/v1/users/{id}15" with the following payload 

 "name": "UpdatedName"
}

Note- 'id' in the URL above refers to the id of the user.

Thank you!
