Parsing CSR Query Results


Whenever I generate a chart or table which involves "User" entries there tend to be two fields along the expected users.

1) "(auth skip user)"

2) "-"

While "-" feels fairly self-explanatory; the users were simply not authenticated, what kind of rule has to be hit for the result to be "(auth skip user)"?

Re: Parsing CSR Query Results

Dear @luka_hajnrihar ,


the "(auth skip user)" is nothing MWG write by default. However, you have the ability to write dummy user such as "(auth skip user)" into variable Authentication.UserName. Whatever the value is will be logged to Access log and gets to the database. 


You can use search function in the UI to find above mentioned Property "Authentication.UserName" usage in your Rule Set. Which can help you understanding when it is been set. 

Best Regards,
