The api documentation describes the users-by-email endpoint with the following:
" The GET /api/v2/users-by-email endpoint allows you to search for users using their email addresses."
The example on the same page shows the response as a list. Email is described as a natural key elsewhere in the documentation though. And other topics that I’ve read have answers saying that two users cannot exist with the same email.
Why does this endpoint return a list? When would it be possible to have two users with the same email address?
Hey there @pandomg welcome to the community!
Technically, 2 users with the same email can exist in separate connections. That’s really the only scenario I can think of where this is possible.
Hope this helps!
If I had an email duplicated across multiple connections, would they both be returned by this endpoint?
How would I tell which user in the list is from which connection?
I see a connection field on the the identities, but that is a list on a user, which implies to me that that a single user could have multiple connections.
If you had 2 users with the same email, this endpoint would return both user profiles - Each profile will contain its own Identities array with the
If account linking is enabled then a single user could be associated with multiple connections.
