Get the created date for Ambari user via the API?

Explorer

I can get the following details from:

https://host.domain.com:port/api/v1/users/<user>;
 1 {
  2     "Users": {
  3         "active": true,
  4         "admin": true,
  5         "groups": [
  6             "<redacted>"
  7         ],
  8         "ldap_user": <redacted>,
  9         "user_name": "<redacted>",
 10         "user_type": "LDAP"
 11     },


There is no created date. Is there an API call for this? I don't want to have to resort to using our postgres backing DB, as we have limited users added that, and this hampers who can then run our audit tools.

Currently, there is no way to get the user created date from the Ambari REST API. This will hopefully be a feature in Ambari 3.x.

Thank you for the confirmation. Until the, I suppose we can just head into postgres on an add-needed basis. I don't want to keep this postgres python code in, since it inhibits who can run the audit tool (only a specific service account).
