The AllAuthUsersGroup is a good start. I can see some ways that the value of this could be extended by adding a corresponding variable that worked similarly to WEBLIST


%ALLAUTHUSERS% expands to the list of all authenticated users

%ALLAUTHUSERS{sep=", "}% same as above (comma would be the default)

%ALLAUTHUSERS{sep=" | "}% easy to use in a table

%ALLAUTHUSERS{link="on"}% would include the Main. part on each name (default)

%ALLAUTHUSERS{link="off"}% would not include the Main. part on each name


(note that I like the idea of a parameter that toggles include the Main. part, similar to WIKINAME vs WIKIUSERNAME. I'm not tied to link for the parameter, just the idea.)

The AllAuthUsersGroup topic would exist, and could contain something like

   * Set Group = %ALLAUTHUSERS%
so that a TWiki Admin (or anyone with access) could look at this and see the list.

Use cases: do something with all users, e.g. applications that go beyond what UserReports offers, such as an application that sends email to all users, subscribing all users easily to topic changes, etc...

Good idea. Please file a feature proposal topic at TWiki:Codev.TWikiFeatureProposals

I think a %ALLAUTHUSERS% without parameters is sufficient. The comma separated list can easily be manipulated with list functions of the SpreadSheetPlugin.
