APP ID name and firstname for creation

The WS APP ID allowing the creation of users does not make it possible to fill the fields "name" and "first name". These are fields that are present in the user database and can be populated via IBM interface. I want to know if it's possible to upgrade the WS APP ID in order to make it possible to give a "name" and a "first name" to the user I am creating.

    I'm glad we could help.

    I'll be happy to continue the conversation and learn more on how you are using App ID. Please feel free to mail me and we can set a conference call.

    Thank you for your answer !

    Indeed, I didn’t know about that Standard.

    There is no reference to it in the APP ID Documentation ( )

    But now I will be able to create users with information I need.

    Thank you.

    Thanks for reaching out.

    Yes, It is possible. Cloud Directory supports all the fields defined in SCIM 2.0.

    You can see the full range of possibilities here:

    For example, a request for the creation of the user can look like this:

      "active": true,
      "emails": [
          "value": "",
          "primary": true
      "name" : {
            "familyName": "Doe",
            "givenName": "John",
      "userName": "myUserName",
      "displayName": "John Doe"
