Hi Thomas,

The official "change object"-API is not supporting this. However you could use the API that PRTG uses itself to change this field:

/editsettings?id=USER-ID&[email protected]

The first parameter is the ID of the User, the second is the email address that is entered in the "Primary Email Address"-field.
If you want to use this call in a script or anywhere else, please add the username and passhash:


Best regards.
