Currently there is a limitation for the API PATCH BIM 360 Project User.


When the API was designed, we only support document_management and project_administration 2 modules. But now we are adding more new BIM360 modules including Project Management, Design Collabration, Field Management, Model Coordination .etc, unfortunately, all these new modules are not supported by this API yet, and also, if you call this PATCH API to update user's access level to document_management and project_administration modules, the access to other new BIM360 modules will be removed. Our engineering team is already ware of this and working on to improve as a whole.


For example: User Zhong Wu has admin access to BIM360 modules including Document Management, Project Administration, Project Management, Design Collabration, Field Management, Model Coordination, and also classic BIM360 Plan.
