Hello All,

We have a usecase wherein we need to automate the user account creation.

As a part of first step. Given the userID, we need to check if the user has account in RTC.

Is there any OSLC/REST query to check this ? Or any other APIs to check the user existence ?

Request you to assist on this.

 Options for automation

  1. Repotools -exportUsers
  2. Repotools -importUsers
  3. Repotools -createUsers
  4. Java API and show at least how to get the users and find them using an ID.

I use this code snippet from the server-side Java API to retrieve a user (contributor) with a given userid:

IContributorService contributorService = getService(IContributorService.class);
IContributorHandle contributorHandle = contributorService.fetchContributorByUserId(userid);         
IContributor contributor = (IContributor) repositoryItemService.fetchItem(contributorHandle, IRepositoryItemService.COMPLETE);

In order to check whether a user exists in RTC, you could check if contributorHandle is null.
