Metadata type User

This type of metadata designates a user located in the directory.

For example

The metadata type Users is often used when you want to designate a page manager from the directory service. In the same way as in the case of system values, it is possible to select which information from the user is to be displayed (user’s full name, user ID in SiteVision, username, e-mail address, first name, last name, title, description, or telephone).
