AGOL Admin: Make User Filters Work

User filtering for Admins in AGOL is atrocious. The various areas (member management, license management, group rosters, Invite GUI for groups, etc.) do not have a consistent set of filtering options, and none of them include all the options that should be available. Here are some ways to give Admins the tools they need to properly find and manage their users:

  1. Introduce wildcards (%, *)
  2. Allow filtering by
    1. First/Last/Full Name
    2. User Name
    3. Email Address
    4. User type
    5. Role
    6. Date Joined/Created
    7. Last Login
    8. Has/Does Not Have Entitlement(s)
    9. Credit Balance/Used
    10. Enterprise/Non-Enterprise
    11. Has/Does Not Have Items
  3. If partial matches are going to work in some places, they should work everywhere, and consistently
  4. Make partial matches return all matching records rather than only the 1st one
  5. Allow more control over which fields are displayed in table
  6. Allow sorting by all fields displayed
  7. Allow Admin to control how many records are displayed

I'm sure there's others, but the above would be a good start to making the query/filters work. ESRIobviously knows how to do this in their GIS products, you just need to make AGOL do it as well.


Don't seem to be able to filter members on all member roles, only a few options are available. Seems very odd


+1 for this. In particular, being able to filter by date member added to the organisation would be extremely useful.

Example: We use ArcGIS Hub Premium to manage a community of volunteers. We add new volunteer users regularly (either singly or in batches), and then need to add them to a series of groups. When adding to groups, there is no option to filter by most recently added, making the process much slower as we have to filter by each name. When adding tens if not hundreds of additional people to groups, this is very slow.
