For that I saw the User Provisioning API [1] but it seems the adduser method didn’t allow me to set an email, a fullname or an avatar (only a username and a password). For the getUser method, it doesn’t return the avatar also.

You can use ‘editUser’ to add the display name and email [1]. Avatars are not supported at the moment via the provisioning_api. Maybe submit a ticket on GitHub [2] with a request for this feature?
