This service is now deprecated, use /members/{member} [PATCH] instead.

Member details

Both the firstname and surname are limited to 50 characters.

The member-username must be less than 100 characters, unique and cannot contain a ‘@’. The username is required unless the email address is specified.

The email must be less than 100 characters, unique and be a valid Email address. The email address is required unless a username is specified.

The member details are only modified if they are specified in the request.

Password details

The member-password must be less than 100 characters. When the Password is not specified, the member’s email is used if no confirmation is needed, otherwise, a new password will be generated.

Passwords must satisfy a given strength check to be accepted:

  • Regular members must have at least a MEDIUM strength.
  • Administrators must use a STRONG password.

Users MUST include their current password using current-password  to be able to change their password.

By default, an email is sent to the user when their password is changed; to override this behavior, set the password-email to true.
