Export Plone member data as CSV file

Project description


A very common request of customers is to give them a listing of registered users in theirs portals and sites. Althought, as PlonePAS allows us to deploy different user and properties sources, even the most simple case – Plone factory settings – is not covered when we need to export user data.

This package aims to solve, at least, the simple use cases, allowing portal managers to export member data (except password) on a CSV format.


To use this package, on a buildout based installation:

  1. Unpack sc.base.memberdataexport package to src/ folder of your buildout

  2. Edit your buildout.cfg and add the following information:

    eggs =
    zcml =

The last line tells buildout to generate a zcml snippet that tells Zope to configure sc.base.memberdataexport.

If another package depends on the sc.base.memberdataexport egg or includes its zcml directly you do not need to specify anything in the buildout configuration: buildout will detect this automatically.

After updating the configuration you need to run the ‘’bin/buildout’‘, which will take care of updating your system.

Go to the ‘Site Setup’ page in the Plone interface and click on the ‘Add/Remove Products’ link.

Choose the product (check its checkbox) and click the ‘Install’ button.

Uninstall – This can be done from the same management screen, but only if you installed it from the quick installer.

Note: You may have to empty your browser cache to see the effects of the product installation.
