Details

From the REDCap API Documentation:

Data Export: 0=no access, 2=De-Identified, 1=Full Data Set
Form Rights: 0=no access, 2=read only, 1=view records/responses and edit records (survey responses are read-only), 3 = edit survey responses

(NOTE: At this time, only a limited amount of rights-related info will be exported (expiration, data access group ID, data export rights, and form-level rights). However, more info about a user's rights will eventually be added to the Export Users API functionality in future versions of REDCap.)

For some reason I have yet to identify, some User Tables do not export correctly. In some situations, the fields are all shifted one column to the left and the form names are not always exported. This seems to be more common in projects still in Development mode. I have seen one instance of a project in Production where one user had one more column given than any other user. If you notice this behavior, please report it to me as it may help me narrow down the source of the problem
