Updating Wordpress User

  • 25 October 2021

We manage a lot of administrative tasks in Airtable. Some of the tasks we manage require us to update  a user account in Wordpress. 

I looked at the wordpress actions and I don’t see anything for “Update User” the closest I found was “Create User” if I use this option will it create a duplicate user or will it update the user instead. I guess I’m asking is the “Create User” action actually “Create/Update User”? If not is there a way to update user information from Airtable to Wordpress?

You’d likely have to use the WordPress API to update a User:

App APIs can be used in Code step or Webhook steps.



Thanks for the quick reply. I’ll check out the tutorials.

I’ve never used the code step before, but looking at the API I see there are only predefined fields; would custom fields fall under “Meta”?

Yes, I believe Meta contains custom fields:
