#LazyWeb #Mastodon #API and/or #ActivityPub question:

How might one go about informing an instance (via a `POST` request, I'd imagine?) to refetch a remote account's updated profile details (e.g. avatar, header image)?

The `ActivityPub::Activity::Update#perform` method has a code path that looks like it calls a related service that would re-crawl a remote profile, but I'm having trouble determining what sort of request would trigger that class' `perform` method.

@jgarber Searching for the remote account using the search box seems to work.


@jgarber @FenTiger like the search box, just hit the search API endpoint for the user.
