getCanonicalUserID( $user ) -> $cUID

Added:
>
>
  • $user can be a login, wikiname or web.wikiname
 Return the cUID of the specified user. A cUID is a unique identifier which is assigned by TWiki for each user. BEWARE: While the default TWikiUserMapping uses a cUID that looks like a user's LoginName, some characters are modified to make them compatible with rcs.

Other usermappings may use other conventions - the JoomlaUserMapping
 for example, has cUIDs like 'JoomlaeUserMapping_1234'.

Changed:

<
If $user is undefined Get the cUID of logged in user, and will generally be 'BaseUserMapping_666'

If $user is undefined, it assumes the currently logged-in user.

wikiToUserName( $id ) -> $loginName

Translate a Wiki name to a login name.
  • $id - Wiki name, e.g. 'Main.JohnDoe' or 'JohnDoe'. Since TWiki 4.2.1, $id may also be a login name. This will normally be transparent, but should be borne in mind if you have login names that are also legal wiki names.
 Return: $loginName Login name of user, e.g. 'jdoe', or undef if not matched.

userToWikiName( $loginName, $dontAddWeb ) -> $wikiName

  • $loginName - Login name, e.g. 'jdoe'. Since TWiki 4.2.1 this may also be a wiki name. This will normally be transparent, but may be relevant if you have login names that are also valid wiki names.
 
  • $dontAddWeb - Do not add web prefix if "1"
Return: $wikiName Wiki name of user, e.g. 'Main.JohnDoe' or 'JohnDoe'
Changed:

userToWikiName will always return a name. If the user does not
 exist in the mapping, the $loginName parameter is returned. (backward compatibility)

Tip if you want, you can use this method to check your own access control types. For example, if you:

wikiToEmail( $wikiName ) -> $email

Changed:
<
<
  • $wikiName - wiki name of the user
>
>
  • $wikiname - wiki name of the user
 Get the e-mail address(es) of the named user. If the user has multiple e-mail addresses (for example, the user is a group), then the list will be comma-separated.

Since: TWiki::Plugins::VERSION 1.1

Added:
>

Deprecated in favour of wikinameToEmails, because this function only returns a single email address, where a user may in fact have several.

Since TWiki 4.2.1, $wikiName may also be a login name.
