HTTP GET

Retrieves the list of users on the site.

This includes only the users who have active accounts on the site. Any account that has been disabled (for inactivity, spam reasons, or anything else) will be excluded from the list.

The list of users can be filtered down using the q and fullname parameters.

Setting q to a value will by default limit the results to usernames starting with that value. This is a case-insensitive comparison.

If fullname is set to 1, the first and last names will also be checked along with the username. fullname is ignored if q is not set.

For example, accessing /api/users/?q=bo&fullname=1 will list any users with a username, first name or last name starting with bo.

Inactive users will not be returned by default. However by providing ?include-inactive=1 they will be returned.

Request Parameters

counts-onlyBoolean If specified, a single count field is returned with the number of results, instead of the results themselves.
fullnameBoolean Specifies whether q should also match the beginning of the first name or last name. Ignored if q is not set.
include-inactiveBoolean If set, users who are marked as inactive (their accounts have been disabled) will be included in the list.
max-resultsInteger The maximum number of results to return in this list. By default, this is 25. There is a hard limit of 200; if you need more than 200 results, you will need to make more than one request, using the “next” pagination link.
qString The string that the username (or the first name or last name when using fullname) must start with in order to be included in the list. This is case-insensitive.
startInteger The 0-based index of the first result in the list. The start index is usually the previous start index plus the number of previous results. By default, this is 0.
