Use API to find members by email address
Looking at the API reference here:
It suggests you can include email in the API response but that does not seem to be working.
That does not return email.
I want to see if someone is a member already. What is the syntax for searching the API for a member with by their email address or remoteId?
Hi Michael , thanks for your question! To return the email field in the API response, it requires the API token to have a moderator or admin role. (Access to the email address is role-restricted.)
The API user search function allows you to look up a member by the profile information that visible in your member directory area (In the community the URL is /members). This includes:
- Any profile fields shown on the profile cards in the directory
Unfortunately the API search does not currently support searching by email or remoteID.
