List of Users

GET /users?filter=active

Delivers a list of Starmind Users. If not specified via include-parameter, the list only contains non-deleted, non-system and non-hidden users.

Parameter Type Default Description
include_deleted Boolean false include_deleted is deprecated from version 2.43.0. Use the include parameter instead.
include_deleted will also return deleted users if true and the user has the permission to view deleted users. Because a special permission is required, deleted users are not anonymized, regardless of the anonymize_deleted_users setting.
include string Allows additional users to be returned, which aren't returned by default.
The current user must have special permission to use any of the includes. If deleted users are included, they will not be anonymised, regardless of the anonymize_deleted_users setting.
Allowed includes are:
  • deleted additionally includes deleted users
  • hidden additionally includes hidden users
  • system additionally includes system users
Multiple include criteria can be specified as comma-separated string. The response will then, in addition to those users who are returned by default, also include all users who satisfy any of the specified include criteria.
sort string id.asc Specify the criteria the result is sorted by. The allowed sort criteria are id, firstname, lastname, email, first_seen, last_seen. The format is CRITERION.DIRECTION,CRITERION.DIRECTION.

This parameter overrules the result ordering of the query parameter.
query String The search query.
The results are ordered by relevance for the given query (unless a sort parameter overrides this behaviour).
Consult the Concepts section for more technical details about search.
filter string Allows to filter the list of users with filter-criteria.
Allowed filters are:
  • active Show only active users
  • inactive Show only inactive users
role string Filter the list by user role. role must be a valid user-role. A list of valid roles can be found here.
deanonymize_users_email Boolean false Allows to override the anonymize_users_email network setting, if the user has the permission to see other users email. Requires the role user_admin. See: Email Anonymization
limit int 25 Sets how many hits are returned at once.
offset int 0 Offset from the first hit.
