The caller can specify whether to search locally (within the caller's company) or globally across companies that have enabled external communications.

To search for external users, the parameter local needs to be set as false and the service account has to be enabled externally. To do so, make sure at least one of the two following external entitlements are enabled, otherwise, the search will return zero results. ā€¢ Can chat in external IM/MIMs ā€¢ Can chat in private external rooms

By default, searches are performed externally. Set local=true to search locally.

Searching external users by email

The service account is allowed to search for users using their registered email even without having a previous connection with them.

When calling this as an OBO-enabled endpoint, use the OBO User Authenticate token for sessionToken.

šŸš§ Rules & Limitations

šŸ“˜ Note

Search list sizes: search lists may contain up to 100 elements. Inactive users: the results will include inactive users. Account type: the accountType field returns NORMAL if the user is a user account and SYSTEM if the user is a service account. User department, location, title and email: the department, location, title and emailAddress fields are returned only if the user is an internal user of the current pod. When searching between cross-pods, these fields will not be returned.
