Best practice for getting a list of Windchill users?

So evidently, it is not out of the box functionality to be able to see a list of all the Windchill users? I am not sure how you can manage users without seeing who has an account on your system....

So what is the best practice to get a list or report or ??? to see all the users of a Windchill system?

Ideally, I would like to have first and last name, userid, email, etc...

In that case then I'd recommend using Query Builder. Pretty straight forward.

Site --> Utilities --> Report Management. From the top right, pick "New".

On the From tab choose "Add", then select "User"

On the Select tab use "Add", then use the selection box next to the attribute to choose the information you want to view.

Chosse "save", then "choose" generate.

Select all of your chosen criteria, then click "Generate".

Are you willing/able to look directly at the database or do you want to do this from Windchill?

Re: Best practice for getting a list of Windchill users?

Hey Tom,

Either one at this point. I am a little leery of messing with the database, so my preference would be to do this from Windchill.

Re: Best practice for getting a list of Windchill users?

By the way, "Disabled" users are those who have been deleted from Windchill. This is seen by the addition of {wt.org.WTUser:<uid>} to the front of their username. (This allows the same username to be created again in the future without affecting the last user with this same username.)

"Repair Needed" users are those who are currently disconnected. These are users who DO have accounts in Windchill but are no longer visible in the LDAP (Windchill DS, Active Directory, etc.)

Yogesh,

Thanks for the link, and it looks like that would work quite well. I just wasn't able to figure out how to load the report into Windchill. I followed the link on how to load the qml file using the command line but had my syntax or something wrong....

Re: Best practice for getting a list of Windchill users?

You can use Org - Utitlities - Report Management utility to import qml.

Dang! Are you sure it is okay to do that? It is ALMOST too easy, I can't believe they did that on purpose. Don't tell anyone, or they will take it away....

Hey Tom, I have a quick question about the user list; how would I get a list of users who belonged to a certain group? In my case I have a group setup called "Engineering". Thanks in advance!
