About the Members API

The Members API allows you to create and manage a site's members.

With the Members API, you can:

  • Create, update, and delete site members.
  • Retrieve member's information from your site.
  • Add the currently logged in member to your site's community, or remove the member from your site's community.
  • Clear a member's contact information such as their addresses, phone numbers, and emails.

Before you begin

It’s important to note that you must have a site with a members area.

Terminology

  • Members: Site visitors who have signed up as members through your site's Member Signup Form. Members have their own profiles and can interact with other members of the site community.
  • Site Community: A platform on your site where members can interact with eachother.

queryMembers( )

Developer Preview

This API is subject to change. Bug fixes and new features will be released based on developer feedback throughout the preview period.

Retrieves a list of up to 100 members, given the provided filters, fieldsets, sorting and paging, and returns a MembersQueryBuilder object.

The returned object contains the query definition which is typically used to run the query using the find() function.

You can refine the query by chaining MembersQueryBuilder functions onto the query. MembersQueryBuilder functions enable you to sort, filter, and control the results that queryMembers() returns. The functions that are chained to queryMembers() are applied in the order they are called.

queryMembers() runs with the following MembersQueryBuilder defaults that you can override:

  • skip: 0
  • limit: 50

Currently supported fields for sorting:

  • profile.nickname
  • contact.firstName
  • contact.lastName
  • createdDate
  • lastLoginDate

The following MembersQueryBuilder functions are supported for the queryMembers() function. For a full description of the Locations object, see the returned for the items property in MembersQueryResult.

PROPERTYSUPPORTED FILTERS & SORTING
_ideq(),ne(),exists(),in(),hasSome(),startsWith()
loginEmaileq(),ne(),exists(),in(),hasSome(),startsWith()
contact.firstNameeq(),ne(),exists(),in(),hasSome(),startsWith()

updateMember( )

Updates a member's properties.

Only the requested fields are updated. To clear a field's value, set an empty value with an empty string "".

Notes: Updating the contact.addresses, contact.emails, or contact.phones array overwrites the entire array, so any existing values you want to retain must be passed in the updateMember() call along with the new values to add. However, passing an empty array will have no effect, and these functions must be used to clear all data from the respective array:

  • To clear contact.addresses, use deleteMemberAddresses().
  • To clear contact.emails, use deleteMemberEmails().
  • To clear contact.phones, use deleteMemberPhones().
