Set Root Attributes During User Signup

You can set root attributes for a user during sign-up using Auth0's Management API. This allows you to minimize the number of API calls required to set root attributes when creating users.

Make a POST call to the Create a User endpoint. Be sure to replace MGMT_API_ACCESS_TOKEN, CONNECTION_NAME, EMAIL_VALUE, PASSWORD_VALUE, GIVEN_NAME_VALUE, FAMILY_NAME_VALUE, NAME_VALUE, NICKNAME_VALUE, and PICTURE placeholder values with your Management API Access Token, initial connection name, email address, password, given name, family name, name, nickname, and picture URL, respectively.
