hello all,


I am new to Canvas and I am trying to update an existing user in Canvas using REST API. I am able to use POST to create a user successfully.

But when I use PUT, the message returns 'OK' but nothing happens in Canvas. Below is the code I use


                var putData = new List<KeyValuePair<string, string>>();

                putData.Add(new KeyValuePair<string, string>("user[name]", "Bruce Thomas Wayne"));

                putData.Add(new KeyValuePair<string, string>("user[shortname]", "BAT"));

                HttpContent PUTcontent = new FormUrlEncodedContent(putData);

                using (HttpResponseMessage PUTresponse = client.PutAsJsonAsync("/api/v1/users/8?access_token=MYTOKEN", PUTcontent).Result)

                    if (PUTresponse.IsSuccessStatusCode)





the PUTresponse resturns OK. Am I missing some key variable? Please do correct me if I am doing something ridiculous.


Thanks all in advance
