This DTO has been removed as part of the Relativity Services API (RSAPI) Deprecation and is no longer supported. For more information and alternative APIs, see RSAPI deprecation process.

User

A User resource represents a person who has access to Relativity. Users are admin-level resources, which can be created, read, updated, deleted, and queried through the REST API.

This page contains the following information:

Note: The new authentication has moved a few fields from the user object to the new authentication model. This API will still update most of these fields but developers are encouraged to switch to the new protocol. The following fields that are backwards compatible are: Invalid Login Attempts, Changes Password, Maximum Password Age, Password Last Reset on, and Change password next login. The AuthenticationData field is supported only if the field is set to empty string or null. For more information on setting a user's authentication options, see Login Profile Manager (.NET).

GET method

You can use the GET method to retrieve a single User or a collection of Users. For more information, see Retrieve resources.

Retrieve a single User

When you retrieve a single User, you must supply a unique identifier (such as a GUID or ArtifactID) for the resource.

Sample URL

The URL contains the identifier for a User resource. You don't need to provide a body with a GET request.

/localhost/Relativity.REST/Relativity/User/1015314        

Code sample

// Set up the client.
            
HttpClient httpClient = new HttpClient();
httpClient.BaseAddress = new Uri("http://localhost/");
 
//Set the required headers.
            
httpClient.DefaultRequestHeaders.Add("X-CSRF-Header", "-");
httpClient.DefaultRequestHeaders.Add("Authorization", "Basic c2FtcGxlYWRtaW5AcmVsYXRpdml0eS5yZXN0OlMwbTNwQHNzdzByZA==");
 
//Call the GET method on a User.
string url = "Relativity.REST/Relativity/User/1015314";
HttpResponseMessage response = httpClient.GetAsync(url).Result;
string result = response.Content.ReadAsStringAsync().Result;
bool success = HttpStatusCode.OK == response.StatusCode;
 
// Parse the result with Json.NET.
            
JObject resultObject = JObject.Parse(result);
        

Response

Retrieve a collections of Users

You can retrieve a collection of Users with the GET method.

Sample URL

The URL indicates that you are retrieving a collection of User resources. You don't need to provide a body with a GET request.

httpClient.DefaultRequestHeaders.Add("Authorization", "Basic c2FtcGxlYWRtaW5AcmVsYXRpdml0eS5yZXN0OlMwbTNwQHNzdzByZA==");
 
//Call the GET method on the User collection.
string url = "Relativity.REST/Relativity/User";
HttpResponseMessage response = httpClient.GetAsync(url).Result;
string result = response.Content.ReadAsStringAsync().Result;
bool success = HttpStatusCode.OK == response.StatusCode;
 
//Parse the result with Json.NET.
            
JObject resultObject = JObject.Parse(result);
        

Response

POST method

You can use the POST method to perform complex queries or to create resources. For more information, see Perform queries and Create resources.

httpClient.DefaultRequestHeaders.Add("Authorization", "Basic c2FtcGxlYWRtaW5AcmVsYXRpdml0eS5yZXN0OlMwbTNwQHNzdzByZA==");
 
//Call query on a User.
            
string url = "Relativity.REST/Relativity/User/QueryResult";
StringContent content = new StringContent(QueryInputJSON);
content.Headers.ContentType = new MediaTypeHeaderValue("application/json");
HttpResponseMessage response = httpClient.PostAsync(url, content).Result;
string result = response.Content.ReadAsStringAsync().Result;
bool success = HttpStatusCode.Created == response.StatusCode;
 
//Parse the result with Json.NET.
            
JObject resultObject = JObject.Parse(result);
