Updating User's Primary Email Address via API

Hi all.


We at the University of Michigan are developing an integration between our Identity system and Canvas.  An important aspect to this is the ability to update a Canvas user accounts when a user's name or email changes.  We have not found a way to update the user's primary email address via the communication_channels API.  We can create a new email address.  But we cannot switch the primary email address to this new one, nor delete the original.  Ideally, we would be able to modify the default email address without creating a new one and deleting, but a workaround would be fine in the interim.


Have any of you run into this same problem?  Were you able to design a suitable solution via the API?
