This page describes Web API operations for managing users, groups, roles and permissions. See more information how roles and permissions work in QPR ProcessAnalyzer.

Entities

The user management API uses the following entities.

User/group

User/group entity describes both users and groups. Properties:

  • Id (integer): user/group id.
  • IsGroup (boolean): false for users, true for groups.
  • LoginName (string): user login name. Empty/ignored for groups.
  • FullName (string): user/group full name.
  • Email (string): user/group email address.
  • Password (string): user password. Used only when creating or updating users.
  • IsActive (boolean): flag whether user/group is active.
  • Description (string): user/group description.

Role assignment

Role assignment entity describes that a role is given to a certain user/group. Note that role assignments don't have own id's, but they are identified by the combinations of all their property values. Properties:

  • Id (integer): user/group id.
  • ProjectId (integer): project id used in project-specific role assignments. Not used for global permissions.
  • RoleId (integer): role id.

Membership

Membership entity describes that a user belongs to a group. Note that memberships don't have own id's, but memberships are identified by the combinations of all their property values. Properties:

  • GroupId (integer): parent (container) group id.
  • MemberId (integer): child (member) user/group id.
  • RoleName (string): Type of the membership. Supported types are Member, HiddenMember, Administrator.

Role

Role entity describes a role in the system. Properties:

  • Id (integer): role id.
  • Name (string): role name.
  • IsGlobal (boolean): true for global role, false for project-specific-only role. Note that a role can be both global and user-specific.
  • IsProject (boolean): true for project-specific role, false for global-only role. Note that a role can be both global and user-specific.

Methods

Notes:

  • For all methods, both the request and response Content-Type header is application/json;charset=UTF-8.
  • In requests, there needs to be a header Authorization for authentication containing syntax Bearer <access token>.

User and group entities

GET api/users

Gets a list of users/group entities. Can be an empty array if criteria specified by parameters is not matched. Supported query parameters:

  • isGroup (boolean): if false, only users are returned; if true, only groups are returned. If omitted, both users and groups are returned.
  • isActive (boolean): if false or omitted, all users/groups are returned; if true, only active users/groups are returned.
GET api/users/{id}

Gets information of the user/group with given id. Returns the user/group object. Can return null if a user/group is not found.

POST api/users

Creates a new user/group. Takes a user/group object in the body. Note that the id property is ignored if specified. Returns the id of the created user/group.

PUT api/users

Updates an existing user/group. Takes a user/group object in the body. Note that the isGroup property is ignored, because users cannot be changed to groups and vice versa.

Group memberships

GET api/users/memberships/{id}

Gets a list of memberships of the user/group with given id. For a user, the method returns in which groups the user belongs to, and for a group the method returns users belonging to the group. Returns an array of membership objects, which can be empty if user/group is not a member of any group.

PUT api/users/memberships

Adds a membership. Takes a membership object in the body.

DELETE api/users/memberships

Deletes a membership. Takes a membership object in the body.

Roles assignments
