Update User Profile via Rest API - Final Words?


I can't seem to find a satisfactory answer: is it possible to update a user's profile with a Rest API call?

I feel like these should have worked:

However, I keep getting a "forbidden.insufficientScope" / "Insufficient scope for this action" in Postman, even with the "GET Profile" request.

I'm the site admin and the user was created by API, in a Directory that I manage with a domain that I manage on the site. What could be wrong?

Can anyone even just "get" a user's profile with a Rest API call on his instance?

Thank you all in advance,

Best regards,
