    Get a list of all users.

    Is there a service function to get a list of all users known to the system?

        Because Users are just Entities of type "User" you can call the GetEntityList service in EntityServices with the 'type' argument set to "User"


        I am not sure if a specific function exists for getting just users, but this should do the trick.

          Apart from Thearon's suggestion, there is another service called 'GetActiveUsers' under Resources -> CurrentSessionInfo. This would only give you the current logged in/ active users though.

              I believe the 'GetActiveUsers' service returns the list of users that have an active session (aka - are currently logged in to Thingworx) at time of invoking.

              Definitely a cool feature if that is what you are looking for, but will give you inconsistent results if you are looking for an all-encompassing list of users.

                  You can also use the GetGroupMembers service of the Users Group. Below is an example of a REST call in javascript


                  var params = {

                      headers: {'Accept':'application/json-compressed','Content-Type':'application/json'} /* JSON */,

                    password: password  /* STRING */,

                    url: instanceURL+"/Thingworx/Groups/Users/Services/GetGroupMembers" /* STRING */,

                    content: {} /* JSON */,

                    username: username /* STRING */,




                  // result: JSON

                  var usersJSON = Resources["ContentLoaderFunctions"].PostJSON(params);
