"Replace" operation with empty value is not sent on PATCH for FirstName or LastName fields if their value was removed

  1. Create a new user with FirstName equal “Test“ and LastName equal “3“
  2. Provision the user
  3. Go to user details and remove LastName field value
  4. Provision the user again


There is no "Replace" operation with empty value on PATCH

Expected Result:

Azure sould send "Replace" operation with empty value on PATCH in case of LastName value was removed.

    This is a known/expected behavior. It may be changed at some point in the future, as this has been a repeatedly requested feature, but there is no ETA on when (or if) that may happen.
