User management using REST APIs Edited

Hi There,

I am new to JIRA, so kindly excuse if this question is very silly :)

I am trying to perform the User Management operations using the REST APIs. I was able to Create, Delete & Search (for single user using the username paramater).

I am not able to update user information (like emailAddress or displayName) using PUT method. Can you please let me know what I'm missing here:

I created the user using following POST method (/rest/api/2/user)

    "emailAddress": "",
    "name": "test.provisioning",
    "displayName": "TestProvisioning"

And the user got created successfully. But when trying to invoke PUT method using the following JSON(for performing Update operation):

    "displayName": "Test2Provisioning"

I am getting the below error message:

"Oops, something went wrong

Please check".

Please help...

Also I would like to know of there is any approach using REST APIs to

*Fetch the whole list if users from User Management

*User Password Reset

*Enable / Disable a user

 Let me know for any further clarifications. Thank you in advance.
