Hey @Rodrigo Sampaio 👋 Eden from the support engineer team here.

 

It sounds like you might be using an older version of the REST API! API versions prior to version 2.0 had a Leads model as well as a User model. From version 2.0 and onward, these models were updated to both be under the Contacts model, where the contact can have a “role” of User or Lead. In order to tag a user via the API, you will need to make a POST request to the Add tag to a Contact endpoint, with the endpoint being formatted like so: 

https://api.intercom.io/contacts/{contact_id}/tags

 

You will then need to include the ID for the tag in the body of the request: 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you are following this format and still seeing an error when trying to make the request, feel free to let me know and I can escalate this as a conversation with the Support team! 

 

It seems that unfortunately, this issue has still not been resolved. I am experiencing the same problem.
