Retrieve a Member

Retrieve information about a particular person (staff or student).

Permission requirements

The user must have Permissions.Profiles.Read.Core ("View a member's name, Warwick email, job title and University number") on the member to get the most basic information. By default, every University member, staff and student has this permission globally, as does any student's relationship agent, past or present and route auditors on the student's past or present route.

The user must also meet one of the following:

  • The user is viewing information about themselves; or
  • The user is a member of staff; or
  • The information being retrieved is a member of staff; or
  • The department code of the user matches the department of the member; or
  • The user has Permissions.Profiles.Read.CoreCrossDepartment ("View profiles for any department") on the member.

The information you retrieve will depend on your permissions on the particular member. The Member object includes a table showing what permission is required for which information.
