Hi,

I'm trying to make a REST call to get the list of users assigned to a particular role. Is there any such call that can get me this information? I found
https://:8089/servicesNS/admin/UserRoleChecker/authentication/users which is more of a form
1User -> nRoles,
But I was looking for
1Role -> nUsers kind of a data.

Is there any such api call?

@ebythomaspanicker it is not 1 --> N it is N --> N so you can use the same REST API and pass specific role/s as per your need and display N User/s returned.

Try the following run anywhere dashboard examples which uses | rest /services/authorization/roles/ | fields title REST API to get the available Roles. Then on selection of Role/s it displays available roles.

<form>
  <label>Users Belonging to Particular Role</label>
  <fieldset submitButton="false"></fieldset>
  <row>
    <panel>
      <title>Select Roles and combination type to find Users belonging to the Roles</title>
      <input type="radio" token="tokConjuction" searchWhenChanged="true">
        <label>Combine Roles by</label>
        <choice value="AND">AND</choice>
        <choice value="OR">OR</choice>
        <default>AND</default>
        <change>
          <unset token="form.tokRoles"></unset>
        </change>
      </input>
      <input type="multiselect" token="tokRoles" searchWhenChanged="true">
        <label>Available Roles</label>
        <valuePrefix>roles=\"</valuePrefix>
        <valueSuffix>\"</valueSuffix>
        <delimiter> $tokConjuction$ </delimiter>
        <fieldForLabel>title</fieldForLabel>
        <fieldForValue>title</fieldForValue>
