A CKS v7.9 user is defined with information about the user — for example last name, first name, email, and country — and about the CKS v7.9 use — for example preferred language, last authentication, and number of connections. This basic information can be configured further whenever necessary with the annotation function.
Web services retrieving data about a user always restricts it to the reduced user profile. A reduced profile is a subset of information about a user. The information items can be selected in the administration section.
Web services managing users also retrieves reduced profiles by default. However, they can be configured to collect all information items about a user.
