Are there a way to get all users imported in SharePoint 2013 with the user profile (not a foundation). I saw SiteUserInfoList but there are not all imported users.

How can I achieve this in client object js

Maybe are there a way to use standard people search and display all peoples?

I guess you have used the following to retrieve the User Profiles:

https://<your site URL>/_api/web/siteusers

In order to achieve this, you can simply use SharePoint Search Rest API. All you have make sure is that you need to use the below Source ID


Following is an example of using the SharePoint Search REST API which you can try:

enter image description here

https://<your site url>//_api/search/query?querytext=%27*%27&rowlimit=3&sourceid=%27B09A7990-05EA-4AF9-81EF-EDFAB16C4E31%27

Also to know more about SharePoint REST APIs, check the following site: http://www.vrdmn.com/2013/07/sharepoint-2013-get-userprofile.html

And below is the site link where you can find out more about SharePoint REST API: https://dev.office.com/sharepoint/docs/general-development/sharepoint-search-rest-api-overview

Also, below is the site link from where you can get the list of all the resurlt source: http://www.dotnetmafia.com/blogs/dotnettipoftheday/archive/2013/01/04/list-of-common-sharepoint-2013-result-source-ids.aspx


Not sure if this is exactly what you're looking for but I used this CSOM code in Powershell to enumerate all users from the Profile Store and dump their details into a list. You could convert this into an SP.js script and run from inside a Script Editor or Content Editor WP.

  1. Create a list with fields for the properties you need
  2. Modify the script from $NewListItem to update the fields with whatever properties you require from $userprofile and $upp (they both have different properties, I've included the links for the namespace references); or do whatever else you need with the properties, like printing to screen

It can probably be optimised a fair bit but the runtime is pretty decent against O365 so should be better for on-premise.

#Import the required DLL

# Set the root Mysite URL to get profiles from (i.e. your Mysite web app)
$msite = 'https://spe551120-my.sharepoint.com'

# Set the user to run the query. Must be a Sharepoint Admin.
$admin = 'user@tenant'

# Set the password.
$password = ConvertTo-SecureString "yourPassword" -AsPlainText -Force

#Get the Client Context and Bind the Site Collection
$context = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientContext($msite)

$credentials = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.SharePointOnlineCredentials($admin,$password)
$context.Credentials = $credentials

#Fetch the users in Site Collection
$users = $context.Web.SiteUsers

#Create an Object [People Manager] to retrieve profile information
$people = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.UserProfiles.PeopleManager($context)
$userIndex = 1;

Foreach($user in $users)
    # The $userprofile object contains some properties
    # https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/microsoft.sharepoint.client.userprofiles.personproperties_members.aspx 
        $userprofile = $people.GetPropertiesFor($user.LoginName)

    # To get the more advanced properties for some reason we need to use this method
    # https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh147513(v=office.14).aspx
    $upp = $userprofile.UserProfileProperties;

    # Load the list
    # Set the URL for the site where the target list lives
    $uSite = "https://spe551120.sharepoint.com"
    $uContext = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientContext($uSite)
    $ucredentials = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.SharePointOnlineCredentials($admin , $password)
    $ucontext.Credentials = $ucredentials

    # Set the name of the list where profile info lives
    $DocLib = "DS_HaveYouMet"
    $List = $uContext.Web.Lists.GetByTitle($DocLib)

    # Create and populate list item - when setting a field via $NewListItem you need to use the Static Name of the field (i.e. what it was when first created), not the Display Name. Replace 'property' with whatever property of $userprofile or $upp you need (see class references for a list of available ones)
    $ListItemCreationInformation = New-Object Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ListItemCreationInformation
    $NewListItem = $List.AddItem($ListItemCreationInformation)
    $NewListItem["fieldName"] = property;

    $userIndex = $userIndex + 1;
