A-Z glossary of PageSeeder concepts


It is an optional public identifier for a user account in PageSeeder, and it is only required when the user account doesn’t 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, underscore, hyphen and dot [0-9a-zA-Z_-.]+
  • 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 their account, another user cannot choose JSNOW or any other variation on the case.



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.
