[Cloud Script]Change User display name


My question is similar to this one as I want to apply some server logic before setting player's name but can't access this method using the Server API. I tried using the REST API to do so but I get an internal error every time.

Here's my script:

var contentType = "application/json";
var header = JSON.stringify

var body = JSON.stringify
	"DisplayName":"New Name",

var response = http.request("", "POST", body, contentType, header);

And the response I get from that http call

{"url":"","method":"POST","content":"{\"DisplayName\":\"New Name\",\"PlayFabId\":\"ID_OF_THE_PLAYER\"}","contentType":"application/json","headers":"{\"Content-Type\":\"application/json\",\"X-SecretKey\":\"MY_SECRET_KEY\"}","result":{"responseContent":null,"httpStatus":null,"httpStatusCode":0,"requestError":"InternalError"},"httpRequestError":"InternalError"}

Is that something we aren't supposed to do and therefore it's not supported?

Any help on that matter would be appreciated. Thanks.

@Brendan maybe?

Correct - you should not attempt to make Admin API calls from Cloud Script. We specifically provide the ability to make Server API calls from Cloud Script and have exposed a number of API calls that way that are valid for use (though please note - writing to Title Data must not be as a result of a player action - it's only there for use in non-segment Scheduled Tasks). Once we've added the display name update API call to the Server API, we'll be posting a follow-up to the original thread.

It's 2018 and we still don't have this added to the API. Any ETA on this?

To be completely transparent, nothing is a trivial change (we require a full set of tests be added for any change or addition, since we're a live service now running over 1,800 live titles), so we have to carefully prioritize what time we have. A significant part of prioritization is, how many people need a particular feature - which we track via feedback here and elsewhere. So it's not a question of when something is originally brought up, but how impactful it will be. At the moment, there are a number of things ahead of this, going by that prioritization, but we'll bump the backlog item to note that you also asked about it.
