We have imported quite a few users, but did not set the externalId. Im now trying to use the REST interface for it. I have several script running just fine. But when Im trying to update a user via the POST function I constantly get a response 400: "Description is required". Earlier I have a "description is required, region is required" This was solved by adding region information to the user. However, there is no description field on a user...
I would like to hear if others have had this problem. or have suggestions on how to solve it.
POST function will only create a user it will not update a user.
Try using PATCH instead with the relevant JSON patch document.
Check out https://your-jira-align-instance/rest/align/api/docs/index.html to see the Swagger for the Users Endpoint.
Try a PATCH request on the user id with the JSON information
"value": "new external id here"
