    Hi there, I need to trail an unrelated URL with all of the user IDs of a specific member type. It needs to look like this – http://www.randomURL.com/URLAction&1,2,3,4,5 (where the numbers at the end are user IDs separated by a comma).

    Can you please advise the best way to do this?

    Thanks so much!!

    Hi,
    Thank you for the question. I do not see a direct way to do it currently. BuddyPress does not have an API to fetch all user ids of a member type without fetching their all data(wp user info data). That is not efficient.

    If you still want it, I will post a sample with BP_User_Query.

    Thank you
    Brajesh

    Hi Brajesh! thanks so much for your reply here. Would it be possible based on role instead? otherwise yes please post an example described above. Thanks so much!

    Hi,
    yes, the role based fetching is very easy.

    Here is a code to get all user ids for subscriber role.

    
    
    	$users_ids = get_users( array(
    		'role'   => 'subscriber',
    		'fields' => 'ID'
    	) );
    

    Please feel free to change the role appropriately.

    Regards
    Brajesh

    Thank you sir! How would I add a comma inbetween each ID when calling the variable if using your example above?

    Hi
    After this line

    
    $users_ids = get_users( array(
    		'role'   => 'subscriber',
    		'fields' => 'ID'
    	) );
    
    

    You can use

    
    
    $list = join( ',', $users_ids );
    
    

    The list will have the comma separated list.

    Regards
    Brajesh
