Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: tcl procs to get user information?

Posted by Randy O'Meara on
Any reason not to use the procs in the acs_user:: namespace? There's also a 'get' proc in there. Looks like the acs_user::get returns additional information and utilizes the cc_users view.

The oacs::user::get proc explicitly joins the users, parties, and persons tables to do essentially the same thing. The oacs:: namespace is pretty sparse... it contains only the oacs::user::get proc.

In general, is it better to join the three tables or use the cc_users view?

Use acs_user::. We should deprecate oacs::user::get. Anyone see a reason why we shouldn't?

How come I can't see acs_user::get in the api-doc? I searched in the latest docs on and it just doesn't come up.
