[BUG] User Tags not updating via REST API

I have tried to update the _user_tags field using the REST API PUT request, but it doesn’t seem to be working.

For example, I use:

PUT http://localhost:8080/api/resource/Item/p0156_3

The response I get back from the server after is a 200:OK message, and the data received indicates that the _user_tags field has been updated. However, if I request the Item again (using a GET, or looking on the website), the _user_tags field isn’t actually updated.

Is this intentional? Is there another way that tags are supposed to be edited?

Please anyone can confirm if this issue was resolved? If yes, how?
