Search for users

Use the Search for Users API to search for all users in the Control Room.

Prerequisites

View Users
Users who have view users permissions can retrieve all users.
JSON Web Token (JWT)
All Control Room APIs require a JSON Web Token (JWT) to access the APIs. Generate an authentication token using the Authentication API. See Authentication API.
  • URL: http://<your_control_room_url>/v1/usermanagement/users/list.

    Replace the content in the angle brackets with your Control Room URL.

  • Method: POST.
  • Use the Swagger definition files installed with your Control Room to test the APIs. View the available Swagger APIs at: http://<your_control_room_url>/swagger/.
  • You can also use a REST client to complete this task.

Procedure

  1. Add an authentication token to the request header.
    Use the Authentication API to generate a JSON Web Token. See Authentication API.
  2. Select POST as the method.
    Apply filters to perform basic conditional queries and pagination control for processing web pages. There are three basic features related to filtering: filtering conditions, sorting columns, and pagination parameters. See Filters in an API request body.
    POST http://<your_control_room_url>/v1/usermanagement/users/list
  3. Send the request.
    • In a REST client, click SEND.
    • In the Swagger interface, click Execute.
