Documentation for user/custom


Is there an example on how to use user/custom properly? I’ve been struggling to understand how to keep track of some extra fields of data via custom and there is very limited information.

All I want to do is add a few “customs” to a user via script after the user registers via post_process. Then I want to get the customs two ways.

  1. When the user logs in, get their custom data.
  2. Get customs for a DIFFERENT user than the one logged in.

How can I do this?

When I try to test via API Docs I seem to either return no customs, or I return all of them. How do I know what user the customs belong to?

Also worth mentioning, the API docs for 2.3 seem to be missing information compared to my old installation.
V2.3 system/user API docs:

V2.0.2 system/user API docs:


@toddappleton added some documentation here

hope that helps, let us know if you have questions.


That is a huge help.

I think it would be very useful to add access to all users’ customs via system in the future. Then linking the DF user with an external table containing custom user data would not typically be required.

Thanks for the wiki update.

BTW, your wiki menu is missing a link to that page. At the moment the only way to reach that document is with a direct link.


Hey @zerox12, I wanted to send you this new link on managing user custom data:

Hopefully this helps!
