By default Swarm shows the member list in a project as a set of avatars. Not everybody in the team has a gravatar ID and not everyone has their picture in corp LDAP. This sometimes makes it difficult to know the member list in a Swarm Project. One has to hover over all the default avatars to know who the members are.

Does anyone know if it is possible to list the members only by their names instead of avatars? I could not find anything relevant in the Swarm 17.2 Admin document.

Hello Jayanth,

There isn't a way of displaying a list of plan text users at present. But if you really want to just see a list of names in the project you can do this by adding "?format-json" after "http://SWARM-HOST/pr...ects/<Project/" and it should give you a JSON object out.

You might want to also install a JSON viewer in your browser to view this data easier.

I would also love to have an option to show names instead of avatars everywhere in Swarm.  Mousing over every avatar to find out who the reviewers are, for example, is a bit annoying.

Hello Dale,
Could you clarify where to add "?format-json" to see names instead of avatars? It is really annoying to mouse over every avatar.
