API Create user external_ids parameter

I am testing creating users via API and I would like to pass the external user ID along but I cannot figure out how to use the external_ids parameter (I suppose that’s what it’s for). No matter what I put in there I get this error: “You supplied invalid parameters to the request: external_ids”.
This would be used in conjunction with DiscourseConnect.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

I think the way to do this is to post to the sync_sso route as described in Sync DiscourseConnect user data with the sync_sso route .

I need to migrate users from another platform and will be investigating that method for creating new users based on their external id. Will circle back here with any useful updates.
