As an admin, can I change one of my user's username? If yes, how?

A user would like me to change their username. Is this possible as an admin?

It’s possible to change the username of a user through the update user functionality of the Management API. You can find more information here on how to generate a Management API access token to be able to perform the change

For anyone that has stumbled on this answer, check out this post: Management API "Your account is not allowed to update the following user attributes: name"

I tried using the Auth0 Management API to update a user’s “name” field and received the following error (as detailed in the linked post): Your account is not allowed to update the following user attributes: name.

So at the moment, it does not appear possible to change a user’s name field.

love it thank for the valuable information… kodi

There is currently a feature in development that will allow you to update these normalized root attributes: Updatable Normalized Profile Root Attributes [Product Roadmap: In Progress] You can follow that topic for updates on when this feature is launched!
