Is it Possible to Set "email_verified": true with the Management API?

Problem statement

Is it possible to always set email_verified to true for a certain subset of users when they first log in?


It is possible to update the user profile to set the email_verified to true using the ‘PATCH /api/v2/users/{id}’ Management API endpoint.

PATCH: https://YOUR_DOMAIN/api/v2/users/{user_id}

    "email_verified": true

Here is a post-registration Action example that will permanently update the user’s email_verified in the user profile:

exports.onExecutePostUserRegistration = async (event) => {
  console.log('ACTION ******* onExecutePostUserRegistration: START *******');
  const ManagementClient = require('auth0').ManagementClient;
  const management = new ManagementClient({
     domain: event.secrets.domain,
      clientId: event.secrets.clientId,
      clientSecret: event.secrets.clientSecret,

  try {
    console.log("user before update: ", event.user);
    var params = { 
     "id":  event.user.user_id
    var data = {
     "email_verified": true
   const userObj = await management.updateUser(params, data, function (err, user) {
      if (err) {
        console.log("api call error: ", err);
  } catch (e) {
    console.log("error: ", e)
  console.log('ACTION ******* onExecutePostUserRegistration: END *******');

It should be noted that depending on the usage of the above script, this may cause issues with rate limiting.

Please note that this code is just to be used as an example and should be tested thoroughly before you push it to production.
