Hi @Fernando André 

Welcome to the community 

You may try using this REST API endpoint :

PUT /rest/api/2/user


For more information, please refer to this page :

I hope this helps.

Sorry but I noticed that this does not work in my version.


I'm using version 8.2.5 and version 8.4.1 , Is it possible to change in these versions?


Best regards,
