I just want to know, is there any way to get a SharePoint user using javascript / jquery from default SharePoint 2010 user profile db?

My requirement is to form an array of all SharePoint site users (user name) and use this array in a java function (that run behind the page at client side ) as a data source for a SPServices function.

Please provide any fisible solution or any other approach for building the array for javascript.

  • You say 'get a sharepoint user' and also 'an array of all sharepoint site users'. The answer depends based on which you want to do. – Marc D Anderson Feb 1 '11 at 19:19

Check out http://SPServices.codeplex.com, it has functions to interact with the user profile service, specifically the UserProfileService operations.
