Can you change email that is initially blank for SAML connections?

So i have a SAML connection which doesn’t provide us an email initially.
They use username/password to login and I want to update the email of the user through a progressive profiling screen in auth0.
Is there a way to change the primary email that is showing as (Empty)?

This is the error i get when i try to update it through management client.
text: '{"statusCode":400,"error":"Bad Request","message":"Cannot update email for this user","errorCode":"operation_not_supported"}',

I have the same problem. Did you ever get an answer?

Hey there!

Sorry for such huge delay in response! We’re doing our best in providing you with best developer support experience out there, but sometimes our bandwidth is not enough comparing to the number of incoming questions.

Wanted to reach out to know if you still require further assistance?

@konrad.sopala Still the same question. Is it supported now?

I’m also having the same issues with Auth0 and by the looks of it, their support can’t help us. Their documentation is very misleading, too. It says we can update the email but I’ve tried all the notes on this documentation: https://auth0.com/docs/api/management/v2#!/Users/patch_users_by_id
And I’m still not getting any luck.

Hello, I’d like to add a point that when I update user email from sms connection it gives the same error as this one. Any updates?

Hey there!

Sorry for the delay in response but I got trapped in this huge wave of questions that we get. Getting back to the core issue!

Judging by our Management API Explorer it seems to be doable but I think I need more context maybe code snippets how your request look like cause when you get a 400 status code it’s mostly about bad request response status code indicating that the server cannot or will not process the request due to something that is perceived to be a client error e.g., malformed request syntax
