Searching for users with web services

While using Wing's web services library to list all Cascade users, we encountered issues similar to christianco, including:

  • returning one user when calling $users = $cascade->getUsersByName( '*' );

...despite having fewer than 250 users and not having usernames with spaces. Rebuilding the search index resulted in 0 results being returned and our best guess is that the problem was related to our LDAP implementation.

The search is working now and we think a Cascade restart might be to thank.

    Hi Erik,

    Definitely interesting, and it doesn't look as though we ever narrowed down a cause in Christian's case.

    The Web Services search using * should return the exact same as using the Advanced Search feature in the UI. What kind of results are you seeing if you try searching for asset name * and only check the "Administration Area Assets" within the UI?

    Hey Ryan,

    Since restarting our server, we're getting the same results searching for asset name * from the Advanced Search tab with Users checked, as we do with the web services * search.

    If the issue comes up again, I'll try the UI search, see what it returns and reopen this discussion, if necessary.
