Re: cc metric: total_users

CF Runtime

The users reported by CloudController.total_users are the users the Cloud
Controller has in its database. This is normally the same set of users that
exist in UAA.

However, there is nothing that prevents you from creating users via the
UAAC cli tool, or creating new UAA clients that can create users themselves.

Hi John,

thanks for your answer, however, I don’t understand that completely. For
the open source version of CF, what does “register in CF console” mean? And
what might be an example of “other applications” you are referring to?

Thanks and warm regards

Betreff: [cf-dev] Re: cc metric: total_users

Cloud Controller reports the number of users register in CF console. UAAC
reports additional users who may have access to other applications. So
they are both correct, depending on what you need.

For example, if you call the REST API for a UAAC user that isn't in the CF
console, but still call the cloud controller REST API, you will get a 404.

Hi all,

I have a question, hopefully a small one :-)

The CloudController.total_users metric
(/CF\.CloudController\.0\..*\.total_users/) differs from number of users
reported by uaac (uaac users command / admin ui). Can someone explain why
this differs or which number is the correct one?
