Update Users

Modifies attributes such as email, first name, and last name of Oracle Enterprise Performance Management Cloud users in an identity domain using the new values identified in an ANSI or UTF-8 encoded comma-separated value (CSV) file that was uploaded to the environment. Before using this API, use the Upload REST API to upload the file. Use double quotation marks to enclose fields that contain space charaters in the CSV file. The file should be deleted after the API executes. The file format is as follows:

Firt Name, Last Name,Email, User Login

This API should be run only by Service Administrators who are also assigned to the Identity Domain Administrator role in the identity domain in which users are to be updated. The CSV file should not include the account of the user who executes this command. It updates all properties of the user identified by User Login. Because user accounts are common to all service environments that an Identity Domain Administrator supports, updating an account for one environment updates it for all environments that share the Identity Domain.

With this API, you can see which records failed and the reason why they failed in addition to how many records passed and failed.

The API is asynchronous and returns the Job ID. The presence of status -1 in the response indicates that the updating of users is in progress. Use the job status URI to determine whether the process is complete. Any non-zero status except -1 indicates failure.

This API is version v1.

Required Roles

Identity Domain Administrator and any predefined role (Service Administrator, Power User, User, or Viewer)

REST Resource

PUT /interop/rest/security/<api_verion>/users


Before using the REST resources, you must understand how to access the REST resources and other important concepts. See Implementation Best Practices for EPM Cloud REST APIs. Using this REST API requires prerequisites. See Prerequisites.
