User Manager

The User Manager provides a high-level abstraction over the User Service and Member Services to perform common simulation actions, like uploading users into a group.

     var UserManager = F.manager.User;
     var um = new UserManager(getRunParams());
     um.uploadUsersToGroup($('#userTextarea').val()).then(function(){ alert('Upload sucess!'); }).catch(function (res) {
         if (res.type === UserManager.errors.EMPTY_USERS) {
             alert('No users specified to upload');
         } else if (res.type === UserManager.errors.NO_GROUP_PROVIDED) {
             alert('No group found. Create a group and login as a facilitator to upload users');
         } else {
             alert('Unknown error, please try again');
         }
     });
