Arguments

qry

A query string to filter users by. The query string is not case sensitive and can contain special characters, such as @.

The query string must be at least 5 alphabetic characters long to return good enough matches. E.g. janet will match a user with display name Janette Doe. E.g., @dbca.wa will match users with an email from dbca.wa.gov.au, whereas @dbca.w or @dbca will return no matches.

Default: NULL.

url

The ODK Central base URL without trailing slash.

Default: get_default_url.

Set default url through ru_setup(url="...").

See vignette("Setup", package = "ruODK").

un

The ODK Central username (an email address). Default: get_default_un. Set default un through ru_setup(un="..."). See vignette("Setup", package = "ruODK").

pw

The ODK Central password. Default: get_default_pw. Set default pw through ru_setup(pw="..."). See vignette("Setup", package = "ruODK").

retries

The number of attempts to retrieve a web resource.

This parameter is given to RETRY(times = retries).

Default: 3.

orders

(vector of character) Orders of datetime elements for lubridate.

Default: c("YmdHMS", "YmdHMSz", "Ymd HMS", "Ymd HMSz", "Ymd", "ymd").

tz

A timezone to convert dates and times to.

Read vignette("setup", package = "ruODK") to learn how ruODK's timezone can be set globally or per function.

verbose

Whether to display debug messages or not.

Read vignette("setup", package = "ruODK") to learn how ruODK's verbosity can be set globally or per function.

Value

A tibble with user details as per the ODK Central API docs.

Details

Currently, there are no paging or filtering options, so listing Users will get you every User in the system, every time. Optionally, a q query string parameter may be provided to filter the returned users by any given string. The search is performed via a trigram similarity index over both the Email and Display Name fields, and results are ordered by match score, best matches first. If a q parameter is given, and it exactly matches an email address that exists in the system, that user's details will always be returned, even for actors who cannot user.list. The request must still authenticate as a valid Actor. This allows non-Administrators to choose a user for an action (e.g. grant rights) without allowing full search.

Actors who cannot user.list will always receive [] with a 200 OK response. ruODK does not (yet) warn if this is the case, and you (the requesting Actor) have no permission to user.list.
