Unable to fetch all users with an api

Saquib Fraz December 27, 2019

Hi All,

I'm trying to fetch the user count in crowd with the api - GET /rest/usermanagement/1/user

the command here i'm using:

curl -s https://my-crowd-server/crowd/rest/usermanagement/1/user

and when I try hitting the url "https://my-crowd-server/crowd/rest/usermanagement/1/user" recursively  asking to enter username & Password.

Please suggest if this is the correct api i've landed or let me know the correct way to fetch the user count. 

crowd version : 3.2.6

 

Thanks

Hi @Saquib Fraz ,

 

Thanks for asking this question on the community. My I ask you what do you need this number of users for? Perhaps you want to count how many users are using your products that are connected to Crowd?

When it comes to the API you've mentioned, this is an API that is being used by applications connected to Crowd, which means that in order to use that you will have to authenticate to that API using your application credentials not your admin ones.

For example when you configure Jira with Crowd and you create Jira application in Crowd you need to provide app name and password that Jira will be using to connect to Crowd. Those are username and password you need to provide in this REST API call. Please note that you will see results as the application on which behalf you are logging in. This means that if you do curl -s https://my-crowd-server/crowd/rest/usermanagement/1/user and provide Jira's application name and password you will only see users that are in directories that are mapped to this Jira application not all users from all directories that are defined in Crowd.

 

Hope that helps,

Marcin Kempa
