In the API, the name field has a capital letter however the key is all lowercase. I just need to be able to update that to be all lowercase. The front-end has no options to change this. The user was created by "invite" using Gsuite.
Hi @Adam Asper ,

Please provide as many details as possible.
Hi @Adam Asper ,
May I ask why you want to change the "name" property returned by the rest/api/3/user endpoint?
This property is not used anymore and, as written in the Deprecation notice and migration guide for major changes to Jira Cloud REST APIs to improve user privacy page, name and key properties are being removed from the User object and you should use the accountId instead.
This is also mentioned in the Major changes to Jira Cloud REST APIs are coming to improve user privacy:
Changed to reference Atlassian account API URL.
Removed following the deprecation period.
Will be changed to return the same value as

Will always be returned. Primary identifier for users.
