Username

It is an optional public identifier for a user account in PageSeeder, and is only required when the user account does not have an email address.

To be valid, it must match the following conditions:

  • Must be unique (see following note).
  • Must be between 1 and 100 characters.
  • Must only contain word characters, dash and dot [0-9a-zA-Z_-.]+
  • Cannot include the @ character.
  • Cannot be only digits [0-9]+ 

The username is case-preserving but not case-sensitive, so if a user has chosen the username jsnow for its account, another user cannot choose JSNOW or any other variation on the case.

API

In the service API, it can be used as a value for the {member} URL parameter. For example, you could use /api/members/jsnow.json for service /members/{member} with username jsnow.

When a user has a username, it is returned as the @username attribute on the <member> element.
