working with both CLM 4.0.7 and 6.0.3, I'm building some code to get Contributors, and if they cannot be found import them from LDAP, as part of a user management utility. I know how to get all users for the repository or specific users by ID but there is no method in teamRepository.contributorManager to fetch Contributors by name. I would expect there to be one that returns a list, but no luck.
Does anyone know of a way to do this? Something internal (again) perhaps? I want to avoid fetching all (thousands) of users then interrogating that list to see if a user is present, if at all possible, as that's a really inelegant solution and will surely gobble up a lot of RAM (I've no idea how much per 1000 Contributors, say).
Can anyone help?
