And that’s it for part one. There are lots of possible ways to extract the user information from eZ and here we've covered the most basic. We have also seen how we can display all of the user information for the users. The same methods we have used here such as attribute(), definition() and dataMap() are all also applicable to content objects so be sure to make a note of them for other exports you may need to carry out.

The next part of this tutorial we will build on what we’ve started by formatting and displaying filtered lists of user information and setting up a cronjob that can be used to automate the process, saving the results in tab delimited files for easy export.
