User details can not be update via rest api

Hello,

I am using JIRA rest api JIRA 7.0.2. In that trying to update user information by using below method(as per documentation-[https://docs.atlassian.com/jira/REST/latest/#api/2/user-updateUser]):
http(s)://jiraEndpointUrl/rest/api/2/user?username=User8
passing below json:
{
"name": "IRISUser8",
"emailAddress": "irisuser8@gmail.com",
"displayName": "IRIS User8"
}
when I am calling with above details then it will return below error(json response) to me with status code=400.
Json response(error):-
{"errorMessages":["This user can not be renamed because that operation is unsupported by the underlying user directory or JIRA is acting as a Crowd Server."],"errors":{}}.

So can anyone please let me know why it will give me an error for that and whats wrong in my API Code.

Thanks

Hey Hiren,


Are you using JIRA Cloud? We have a open bug for it here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/ID-248
