Export User Information List

(eriko) #21

Is there a way to access this via the API. Since you can not access the full user list via the api I could use this for my purpose. I need to compare and clean the users on an instance based on and external list.

@techAPJ would it be possible to add location in the user export? This would help us to identify people by country (we use SSO to populate the location field with the country of the user) so we can alert them about opportunities in their country. As explained in this topic.

Okay, I added three more fields to user list export: location, website, views. :sunny:

@techAPJ is the time spent reading recently (as visible in user cards) a number stored in the user table? If so, would you be willing to also add it to the user export?

I’m trying to MVP a way to get this:

No, it’s not stored in a table. It is calculated at runtime.

ah - got it. thanks! back to the drawing board, then. :seedling:

There is no option to export users in current version of discource. I am running version 2.2.0-beta3. Does this mean there are no ways to do that now, or has it moved to some other place?

UPDATE: Sorry, I found this option, was hidden, I had to scroll to see it.

How to reduce link lifetime? And delete files * .gz

You can’t. It’s hardcoded to be deleted after 2 days
