How to Merge and Delete User Accounts via API

We need to setup a API function to change a users user name, which in Panopto involves the process of merging and deleting an old user with the new user account: https://support.panopto.com/s/article/Merge-and-Delete-a-User-Account Would any of you have some general guide lines, as to, which part of the REST / SOAP APIs to use for such a function? Many thanks in advance. Best, Thorkild Jensen

    Unfortunately, we do not currently have any APIs available to merge users in either our SOAP or our REST APIs.

    There is a SOAP API function available to delete a user, but it will not merge them with another user:


    I have added this to our feature request list for our public APIs to consider adding an endpoint to merge and delete users in the future.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions.
