Account Endpoints

Query Account

'GET /accounts/'

Queries accounts visible to the caller. The query string must be provided by the q parameter. The n parameter can be used to limit the returned results.

As result a list of AccountInfo entities is returned.

Request
  GET /accounts/?q=name:John+email:example.com&n=2 HTTP/1.0
Response
  HTTP/1.1 200 OK
  Content-Disposition: attachment
  Content-Type: application/json; charset=UTF-8

    },
    {
      "_account_id": 1001439,
      "_more_accounts": true
    }
  ]

If the number of accounts matching the query exceeds either the internal limit or a supplied n query parameter, the last account object has a _more_accounts: true JSON field set.

The S or start query parameter can be supplied to skip a number of accounts from the list.

Additional fields can be obtained by adding o parameters, each option slows down the query response time to the client so they are generally disabled by default. Optional fields are:

  • DETAILS: Includes full name, preferred email, username, avatars, status and state for each account.

  • ALL_EMAILS: Includes all registered emails. Requires the caller to have the Modify Account global capability.

To get account suggestions set the parameter suggest and provide the typed substring as query q. If a result limit n is not specified, then the default 10 is used.

For account suggestions account details and all emails are always returned.

Request
  GET /accounts/?suggest&q=John HTTP/1.0

Secondary emails are only included if the calling user has the Modify Account capability.

IDs

{account-id}

Identifier that uniquely identifies one account.

This can be:

  • self or me for the calling user

  • a bare account ID ("18419")

  • an account ID following a name in parentheses ("Full Name (18419)")

  • a string of the format "Full Name <email@example.com>"

  • just the email address ("email@example")

  • a full name ("Full Name")

  • a user name ("username")

In all cases, accounts that are not visible to the calling user are not considered.

In all cases except a bare account ID and self/me, inactive accounts are not considered. Inactive accounts should only be referenced by bare ID.

If the input is a bare account ID, this will always resolve to exactly one account if there is a visible account with that ID, and zero accounts otherwise. (This is true even in corner cases like a user having a full name which is exactly a numeric account ID belonging to a different user; such a user cannot be identified by this number.)

If the identifier is ambiguous or only refers to inactive accounts, the error message from the API should contain a human-readable description of how to disambiguate the request.

Note: Except as noted above, callers should not rely on the particular priorities of any of the identifiers in the account resolution algorithm. Any other formats may be subject to future deprecation. If callers require specific searching semantics, they should use the Query Account endpoint to resolve a string to one or more accounts, then access the API using the account ID.

{capability-id}

Identifier of a global capability. Valid values are all field names of the CapabilityInfo entity.

{email-id}

An email address, or preferred for the preferred email address of the user.

{username}

The user name.

{ssh-key-id}

The sequence number of the SSH key.

{gpg-key-id}

A GPG key identifier, either the 8-character hex key reported by gpg --list-keys, or the 40-character hex fingerprint (whitespace is ignored) reported by gpg --list-keys --with-fingerprint.
