User Settings - Management API

This section provides a basic example of how to update the user settings for your account using the Management API.

The request must include one or more operations. You can specify a different path for each operation, allowing you to update multiple settings at the same time.


These requests require an access token, as described in Authenticate.

Update user settings

To update user settings with the Management API, use the PATCH <https://api.symbl.ai/v1/manage/settings> operation.

import fetch from 'node-fetch';

const accessToken = '<ACCESS_TOKEN>';
const settings = [
    "op": "<OPERATION>",
    "path": "<PATH>",
    "value": "<VALUE>"
    "op": "<OPERATION>",
    "path": "<PATH>",
    "value": "<VALUE>"

const fetchResponse = await fetch(`https://api.symbl.ai/v1/manage/settings`, {
  method: patch,
  body: JSON.stringify(settings),
  headers: {
    'Authorization': `Bearer ${accessToken}`,
    'Content-Type': 'application/json'

const responseBody = await fetchResponse.json();
