Update an Office 365 user's properties.

Unless otherwise indicated, field types are text.

Input

  • User

    • Id or Username: The user ID or username of the Office 365 user. This is the user's User Principal Name (UPN). A UPN is formed by taking the username and domain and combining them with the @ separator, for example, john.doe@somedomain.com. This could be the user's email address, but this is not true in all cases.
  • Properties

    • On Premises Immutable Id: This property is used to associate an on-premises Active Directory user account to their Azure AD user object. This property must be specified when creating a new user account in the Graph if you are using a federated domain for the user's User PrincipalName (UPN) property.

    • Other Mails: A list of additional email addresses for the user.

    • Password Policies: Specifies password policies for the user. This value is an enumeration with one possible value being “DisableStrongPassword”, which allows weaker passwords than the default policy to be specified. “DisablePasswordExpiration” can also be specified. The two may be specified together; for example: "DisablePasswordExpiration, DisableStrongPassword".

    • Password: This specifies the password policies for the user. "DisableStrongPassword" allows weaker passwords than the default policy to be used. "DisablePasswordExpiration" sets the user's password to never expire. You can specify both by entering "DisablePasswordExpiration, DisableStrongPassword".

    • Force Change Password Next Sign In (true/false): true if the user must change their password on the next login; otherwise false.

    • Force Change Password Next Sign In With MFA (true/false): If true, at next sign-in, the user must perform a multi-factor authentication (MFA) before being forced to change their password. The behavior is identical to forceChangePasswordNextSignIn except that the user is required to first perform a multi-factor authentication before password change. After a password change, this property will be automatically reset to false. If this property is not set, the default value is false.

    • Past Projects (list of text): A list for the user to enumerate their past projects.
