Steps:

  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

Result:

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.
