Search Form

The Search users form allows searching over all uses, which is what simple and advanced search are limited. By default the form has the following fields its searches over:

  • Name - The user's full name, including given and family name.
  • Username - The username of the user.
  • User ID - The ID of the user in the EPrints database. (An auto-incrementing number as users are added).
  • Department/Organisation - The department within the organisation or the organisation itself to which the user belongs.
  • Address/Country - The physical address and/or country for/of the user.
  • User Type - The type of user: Repository Administrator, Editor or regular User.
  • Email address - The email address of the user.

This user search allows all or any of the values set for these fields to be required in search results. It also allows, the results to be ordered based upon:

  • registration date (newest first)
  • name (i.e. full name not username)
  • registration date (oldest first)
  • user type

Editing Search Configuration

The configuration for the Search users page can be found under (or more specifically the configuration setting $c->{search}->{user}). This can normally be found under lib/cfg.d/ but should be copied to the archive's cfg/cfg.d/ for editing.
