API Create User problem

Hello,

 

I seem to have run in to a snag when I create users in our canvas account and I'm hoping the group can lead me in the right direction. My problem is that I CAN create accounts through the canvas API but ALL of the fields are populated with the pseudonym unique_id.
I'm attempting to create a sample user by sending this json:
{"name":{"name":"Cpt. Ultron","sortable_name":"Ultron, Captain"},"pseudonym":{"unique_id":"ultron1"},"communication_channel":{"address":"ultron@hnu.edu","skip_confirmation":"true"}}

to this api uri:

 

 

and when I check the user that is created I see:

Full Name:ultron1
Display Name:ultron1
Sortable Name:ultron1
Default Email:ultron@hnu.edu

 

Please let me know if you would need any other information to help figure out what is going on here!

 

Thank you,
