When using a standard cmn_users_read.xml with a single user filter (equals criteria). It produces an XML file with 'x' records. 1 for each of the partitions available on the Settings > Default Partitions page.

Steps to Recreate:

  1. Create Partition model with for example 2 partitions
  2. Add user admin to both partitions.
  3. Add partition model to object RESOURCE
  4. Add partition model to other objects, for example, application, asset, project.
  5. Go to Account Settings -> Default Partitions tab

    Select partitions for UI Theme

    Select partitions for each object: resource, application, asset, project.
  6. XOG out user admin using provided cmn_users_read.xml. Filter only user admin.

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
    • <NikuDataBus xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../xsd/nikuxog_read.xsd">

      <Header version="6.0.11" action="read" objectType="user" externalSource="NIKU" />
    • <Query>
      <Filter name="userName" criteria="EQUALS">admin</Filter>
  7. Observe output xml file. Search by <User

Expected Results:
output xml file should produce only 1 record

Results Observed:
output xml file has 5 matches of <User. 1 for each of the partitions available on the Settings > Default Partitions page.
