How to bulk update user details in crowd?

We have many existing users in crowd with incorrect email addresses. How can I bulk upload users email address?

I can import users via CSV importer but can't update existing ones.

You can use Crowd REST API for this.

For instance you might want to use the following Groovy script to update a set of email addresses:

import groovyx.net.http.RESTClient
 
 
def applicationName = "myapp"
def applicationPassword = "mypassword"
 
 
def client = new RESTClient( "http://localhost:8095/crowd/rest/usermanagement/1/".toString() )
client.auth.basic applicationName, applicationPassword
 
 
def users = ['john':'john@example.com', 'jane':'jane@foo.com', 'bob':'bob@bar.com']
  
users.each{ username, email ->
  
     def body = "<?xml version=\"1.0\" encoding=\"UTF-8\"?><user name=\"$username\"><email>$email</email></user>"                        
  
     def response = client.put(path: "user",
                               requestContentType: 'application/xml',
                               query:['username': username],
                               body: body) 
                             
    assert response.status == 204
}
