Hi there

In 7.1 you used to be able to see the User Groups a User was a member of when you Edited that Use (see below).

Please re add this feature into 8.0

Hi Mark,


Thanks for coming to us with this. I have double checked and it does look like this was removed in 7.3. I have raised and enhancement request for this for to be investigated for future releases. Before becoming a request, ideas will be reviewed by our Product Team and chosen for Enhancements based on feasibility, level of positive impact to the user experience, and votes from the community. I've gone ahead and created the Idea under your name, you can monitor the status of its progression here. I'll mark this ticket as Completed so that we can track the progress of this through the Idea post.


Cheers,

Neal

Besides to see the information from UI, we need to have this functionality in the WebService API, that is returning group information for a user.

Hi Jiaqi,


Thanks for your addition to this. I believe this would already be possible with a combination of existing WebService calls. I have attached a demo JSP file which takes a user_id parameter from the URL and traverses the users groups and the users within it to provide the list. I tested this against a 2 group Yellowfin with 50,000 users and it performed pretty well. Give it a try, remember to modify the server address, port, username and password for your instance and let me know how you go. My example url was as follows:


http://localhost:8080/listusergroups.jsp?user_id=john.ryan@test.com

Hi Dennis,

Thanks for the quick reply.

Yes, your example will work, it first fetch all groups with the members and then filter the group based on userId.

But we are considering to use this during login process to synchronize the groups information for the login user. If we do as the examples, I am worrying about the performance when there are many groups and users.


Best regards,

Jiaqi

Hi Jiaqi,


Thank you for the clarification of your specific scenario you are looking at. I will raise this as a separate enhancement idea on your behalf as they are similar but not directly related. You will see an email come through when I have done this.


Cheers,

Neal
