Updating custom fields using API

I have been reviewing the API documentation and can not seem to find how I can edit user information other than email and avatar. For example firstname, lastname, and more importantly custom fields.

Can someone please help.

Thank you.

You can learn the API request for that using How to reverse engineer the Discourse API


This is at least twice in as many days that this has been the answer to a question. That link really needs to be at the top of the docs.


I agree, if there is a docs document it is kind of assumed it is complete and if not it would be good to mention it.
