Updating Email through REST API

I’m trying to use this method to update a user’s email address (specifically api/2/user – in the screenshot included), but I’m wondering if this is deprecated because when using a PUT, I get “405 Method Not Allowed”. If I use a POST it actually creates a NEW user in Jira/Confluence though.

My API call is attached as well. Is there another API call to update an email addressed based on an accountId?

Hello @ChrisGreen

Since you’re on Jira Cloud, you really should be using the v3 REST API, since v2 has been deprecated for a few years now.

It’s most likely that endpoint only worked for users on Jira SERVER, not Jira CLOUD, which you are using. It was an experimental endpoint anyhow.
