How does staff user custom fields work?

(Felix Freiberger) #1

I think I am misunderstanding the site setting staff user custom fields.

I have multiple custom user field set up like this:

Only one of them is contained in the site setting staff user custom fields. Still, staff members see the value of all these custom fields in /admin/users.

Is this correct? How can I keep the values of some user fields secret from my staff members?

Could this be a bug?

After some digging, I think this is the only use of the site setting:

This seems to be used here only:

This is where I lost track :frowning:

This is just for the post serializer.

For example, on meta we see a $ sign next to user names for customers, which you do not

So what does this site setting do, exactly? Can I use it to show a custom field only to staff?
