Update a User Email

You must be a domain admin to update a user’s email.


  1. Find the ID (also known as profile ID) of the user whose email you want to update. See Find the User ID.
  2. Use the API for updating a user’s information.
    • In the resource, specify the user ID.

    • In the request body, specify the firstName and lastName mandatory parameters, and the email parameter with the new email address for the user. For example:

         "accountSetting": {
            "firstName": "John",
            "lastName": "Doe",
            "email": "new_email@gooddata.com"

After the API call is executed, the email address is updated.
