Is there a way to change a user’s email address using the API without triggering a confirmation email?
Our users are actually members of our association and when they submit an email address change directly to staff, the staff member changes the contact’s record in our ERP system. Then the staff member needs to log into our Discourse implementation as the user and submit an email address change.
Staff members are complaining that the confirmation email is confusing, not seen or disregarded by the user and therefore the email address change never completes.
I’m trying to kill two birds here:
- I would like to make it so the change email address change can be made right from the ERP system.
- I want to eliminate the incomplete email address change submissions (because of no confirming email action was taken).
We don’t want to use SSO overrides email, because we have a handful of users that want a different Discourse notification than the main notifications from the association.
