Pronouns via API

Via REST API, I know you can update an existing user and add pronouns.  But is it possible to add pronouns when creating the user.  Or will it always be three-steps:
1) create new user

2) get canvas user id

3) update user id w/ pronoun

Thanks

Hello @IanGoh 

I understand that you are wanting to know if there is a way to create and user and add their pronouns using API. 

Based on the what I found in the API documentation:  https://canvas.instructure.com/doc/api/users.html#method.users.create it doesn’t look there is a parameter for that when creating a user, but when editing a user https://canvas.instructure.com/doc/api/users.html#method.users.update there is an option to set the pronouns for them. 

You can always try to submit a ticket to support just to double check on that. 

Hopefully this helps! 

Thanks!
