Email Verified for Connection via Rules

I have SAML connection and when it comes in the Email is not marked as verified. I saw this other question that says I should be able to do it via rules:

But it seems like email_verified doesn’t get set via rules:

function (user, context, callback) {
    user. email_verify = true;
    user.email_verified = true;
    callback(null, user, context);

^-- with that code I see that the email_verify does get set properly, but email_verified does not get updated to true. Is it a special case I need to edit in a different way?

Hi @jreed,

Welcome to the Community

Please see below documentation to update user at auth0

The question is if it’s possible to update the user.email_verified property using Rules.

For some reasons you can update user.nickname or using javascript rules, but not user.email_verified.

I could not find any answer to this in documentation you referenced.

Hi All, Apology for delay in response:

You can set this field value in rule by calling patch API. See below code for reference:

function (user, context, callback) {
  const request = require('request');
  const userApiUrl = auth0.baseUrl + '/users/';
  //Your baseURL will be like this

  // Set email verified if a user has already updated his/her password
    url: userApiUrl + user.user_id,
    headers: {
      Authorization: 'Bearer ' + auth0.accessToken
    json: { email_verified: true },
    timeout: 5000
  function(err, response, body) {
// return in case of success
    return callback(null, user, context);

As @rashid779939 said.

And the documentation for this is at!/Users/patch_users_by_id

Update a user.
These are the attributes that can be updated at the root level:
