Updating a user's password and salt



  • What is the best way to update a users password & salt but nothing else via the API?

    Would the update/patch user endpoint work well enough for just updating these values?



  • If you’re looking to update the password, you can use the Update User API, or the Change Password API.

    Neither of these APIs accept a hashed password and salt however, it accepts a plain text password that it will in turn salt, hash and then persist.

    Check out both these APIs here: https://fusionauth.io/docs/v1/tech/apis/users
