List users via management API, missing roles


In my front-end application, i’d like to make a simple overview of users with their respective roles. The Management API provides a “list_users” (/api/v2/users) endpoint, but the response data per user doesn’t include the users’ roles.

I have found the following topic on this subject:

The solution provided in this topic involves requesting a different endpoint for each user listed to retrieve its roles. I’m wondering why the API was designed this way. Getting a users’ roles (for every user) would involve a large amount of requests to the " /api/v2/users/{id}/roles"-endpoint, which think is not desireable (lots of traffic). I think adding this attribute to the list_users-endpoint would prevent a lot of traffic to and from auth0 in this case.

What is the best practise in this case? Is there a rule I can add to populate app_metadata with a users’ roles?

Thanks in advance,

Hi @Prox,

Thanks for the feedback. Can you please submit it to our product feedback page?

That topic you linked is still up to date. You could certainly populate the roles to app_metadata, but this will require the user to log in before it takes effect.

If that is okay, then here are some resources with similar examples of how to implement it:
