Hi Bikash,

 

There is no out of box functionality to expose user details via rest API's, you need to write custom logic.

 

Things you need to consider:

You are trying to expose user details, as it is PII data,  so you need to consider security, you must enable authentication.

If security is not a concern then you can also create servlets and expose user details in JSON format.

You can use watch below link to get some idea on exposing aem content via rest ap's

You can integrate AEM with Spring and expose data.

you can use UserManager API to get the user details.

 

Ex: 

final UserManager userManager = resource.adaptTo(UserManager.class);

ValueMap properties = resource.getValueMap();

String emailId=properties.get("profile/email", "");

Yes  you can.

But how to access it depends on how the user details you are saving.

Instead of the how, the question is rather if you want to maintain user information on publish at all? The straight-forward way of using JCR users very likely doesn't scale in terms of performance, and also you need think about how you synchronize changes amongst all publish instances.
