Dashboard and API Limited to 1000 users

I just imported about 14,000 users into our production tenant and only 1000 show up at a time both on the dashboard and in the management API. Is there a way to see all of them? Thanks.

The API will only return a maximum of 1000 users for a query. Other users are still accessible by changing the search query or sorting order. If you need to receive more than 1000 users at once, you should use the export endpoint or extension.

Thanks a lot Thijmen for sharing that knowledge!

Thanks for the help. Is the a good way to get a total count of users who match a query without that 1000 user limit?

For as far as I’m aware, there’s no way to do that with the API… But I might be totally wrong here. We might need an Auth0 engineer to answer that one… @konrad.sopala? :innocent:

I see the Auth0 dashboard uses /stats/total-users to show a user count but I’m not sure if that’s available to use (it isn’t listed in the API docs). If it is available I don’t suppose I can pass a query to it?

to be honest, i totally dont get all this 1000 limit weirdness. It will result wrong totals in the Auth0 UI and will really hinder you to do mass updates on user through the REST API.
Dont get this limitation at all when there is paging on the rest endpoint. Thats exactly the reason why paging was invented in the first place :wink:


Exactly this. This is an aweful limitation for us.

Can only agree, super strange limitation! During a migration we want to delete all users between the migration runs, and there is no function for that. The SDK only allows to delete one user at a time. With this 1000 limitation even with pagination we have to restart the delete script 40+ times to delete our 40k+ users. Imagine if you had 100k’s of users …
