How to export all of users by export API


I want to export all my users from Auth0. I’m using export API for and it works well. But actually, it’s not export all of the users. I received the user with “connection”: “Username-Password-Authentication” only. How can I retrieve another user which has the “connection”: “facebook” ,“connection”: “google-oauth2” or something else?
Could I have a help? Thanks.
For more information, this is the result when I’m using /api/v2/jobs/users-exports. You can see:

    "type": "users_export",
    "status": "pending",
    "connection_id": "con_rxxxxxxxxxxxx",
    "format": "json",
    "limit": 100,
    "fields": [
            "name": "email"
            "name": "user_id"
            "name": "updated_at"
            "name": "nickname"
            "name": "email_verified"
    "connection": "Username-Password-Authentication",
    "created_at": "2018-09-20T06:23:49.785Z",
    "id": "job_xxxxxxxx"

Hello Han,

Can you provide the steps you’re using to get the results you’re seeing? The export should return all users regardless of connection type.


That’s what stated here: “Auth0 limits the number of users you can return. If you exceed this threshold, please redefine your search” or use for an answer.


Was there ever a definitive answer to this.
I am also only seeing users with “Username-Password-Authentication”.
I though it was because I was using the connection with the strategy of “auth0” and name “Username-Password-Authentication”, so I tried to use the Facebook specific connection with strategy “facebook” and name “facebook”, but when I do the users-exports, the job returns a url on completion, but when I click that URL I get:-


Access denied

So currently I can’t extract the Facebook users - of which there are lots.


Ignore my previous comment (partly).
I found that by changing the connection id it does work, I had a typo in the script.
I’m updating the post to say you need to target a specific connection for specific user types, so one for auth0 generic users and one for Facebook signups (in my particular case).
Hope this helps someone.


Glad you were able to figure this one out!
