[FEATURE-1478] Get Profiles List (get all user sources)

Hello all,

Is it possible to get a list of all UserProfiles (User Sources) available on a Gateway ?
This list can be seen when trying to “Verify an Authentication Profile…” on the “Users,Roles” page on the Gateway.

I was wondering if it can be fetched on the client side.

Thank you.


Any updates here? I do have the same requirement.

I’d also find it useful to get a list of user sources on a gateway via scripting to replace the magic strings in listUserSources below and make this function standard for all gateways. Is there something I’m missing?

def listUserSources():
	""" Return list of user sources on gateway."""
	return ["Hybrid", "default"]

def getFullName(username, userSource=None):
	""" Get user's full name from specified user source, or the first one with username when none specified."""
	if userSource:
		user = system.user.getUser(userSource, username)
		for userSource in listUserSources():
			user = system.user.getUser(userSource, username)
			if user:
	return user.get("firstname") + " " + user.get("lastname")

There is currently no good way to fetch the list of all configured user source profiles from a script. From gateway scope, you could use this for now, but just know it depends on internal data structures which (though not likely to change in the foreseeable future) may change:

	from com.inductiveautomation.ignition.gateway import IgnitionGateway
	from simpleorm.dataset import SQuery
	from com.inductiveautomation.ignition.gateway.user import UserSourceProfileRecord
	query = SQuery(UserSourceProfileRecord.META).ascending(UserSourceProfileRecord.Name)
	results = IgnitionGateway.get().getPersistenceInterface().query(query)
	userSourceProfileNames = []
	for result in results:
	return userSourceProfileNames

Has this been implemented?

The latest early access build of 8.1 (8.1.15-b20220131) has implemented a system.user.getUserSources() scripting function which takes no arguments and returns a sequence of objects representing all of the user source profiles configured in the Gateway. Each object has a “name” property, a “description” property, and a “type” property.
