I just tried it. It is just a POST to the /api/v10/users endpoint.

curl -u uname:passw -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X POST -d '{ "items" : [ { "name" : "matt", "password" : "test" } ] }' http://cm_host:7180/api/v15/users

@VuSand3259,

 

 

You can use this endpoint:

 

https://cloudera.github.io/cm_api/apidocs/v19/path__users_-userName-.html

 

using the PUT method via REST API allows you to update the user object defined here:

 

https://cloudera.github.io/cm_api/apidocs/v19/ns0_apiUser.html

 

For example, the following would make an existing user "mytestuser" a full administrator in CM 5.15 (you would need to use the api version that is right for your CM version):

 

curl -u cm_user:cm_pass -H "Content-Type: application/json" -X PUT -d '{"roles" : [ "ROLE_ADMIN"]}' http://cm_host:7180/api/v19/users/mytestuser
