Hi Tom

Thanks for your quick answer on my first question – much appreciate. I add a feature ticket into github to ask to support avatar in the API https://github.com/owncloud/core/issues/20973

Owncloud is a great product and I would like to integrate owncloud in my Information System. 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.
Do you have a link to help me to understand which API I can use for this purpose?


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?
