Additional details field in the members API

#1

Is it possible to get the member additional details data from the API?

I can’t see any reference to it in the API docs. I use this in the relationship manager to associate my members with a username.

You do get the additional details field in the CSV export, but that feature is broken for me currently so I can’t use that either.

Hi @littlejames

The member object doesn’t have user information directly; for that, you need to include the user (add a query param for include=user.null). In addition, you need to specify which fields to include (another query param fields[user]=first_name,last_name,... . See https://docs.patreon.com/#user-v2 for which fields can be requested on the user object and https://docs.patreon.com/#resources for an explanation of the JSON:API standard for requesting includes/fields.

The vanity field specifically is the user’s username

Hope this helps and let me know if you have further questions!

Hey Evy,

I don’t see an attribute for ‘Additional details’ though? I’m assuming this is not possible at this time?

Ah! My bad. I believe “Additional details” is the note attribute on member. Let me know if that works!
