    Can anyone give me more information about RESTful user service please?

    What we would like to achieve are as follows:
    1. What are the parameters need to provide to change the password of a user.
    2. What are the minimal mandatory attributes in JSON to pass to CreateUser
    3. What are the mandatory attributes in JSON to pass to UpdateUser, what attributes are not changeable, what different between UpdateUser and UpdateUserBasic.
    4. What are the mandatory attributes in JSON to pass to DeleteUser
    5. We would like the implement create, update and delete user functionality.  Are there other methods need to involve to achieve the above functionality?

    Many thanks in advance,
    Quynh Nguyen.

    Hi Quynh,

    You can get WCF service help by typing yourhost/Sitefinity/Services/Security/Users.svc/help

    So you can see all needed parameters and what the json returns.

    Note that to execute crud operation you need to authenticate a user that can work with users (create, edit, modify, delete etc). You could take a look at this forum post to gather more information about the authentication.

    Kind regards,
