Hi Tim,

Did you find a solution to your problem? 

I am facing the exact same issue. 

Thanks, Sumit

Hi Surmit


there are several solutions that I found:


1. Give the webservices login account admin rights, you then get all the fields

2. You can get some fields by turning them on in the profile, email for example


It seems hit and miss to find out what fields you can get, not sure why you would restrict them but I guess its part of the bigger permissions picture.

The searching needs to have these fields enabled as well, so if you want to search by username then you must have this field returned as well. the only way I found of getting/searching by username for example was to give the web service account admin rights which seems a bit overkill!


Good luck

Thanks, Tim for pointing out the direction.

Managed to get it working by providing the following permission to Webservice User

moodle/user:viewalldetails
