- user.getId() - returns the internal identifier object that the backing user source needs to identify this user
- user.getRoles() - returns a sequence of strings representing the roles that this user belongs to
- user.getContactInfo() - returns a sequence of ContactInfo objects. Each of these objects will have a contactType and value property representing the contact information, both strings.
- user.getScheduleAdjustments() - returns a sequence of ScheduleAdjustment objects. Each of these objects will have two date properties, "start" and "end", a boolean property, "available", and a string property called "note".
- user.getPath() - returns a QualifiedPath object that represents this user in a deterministic manner.
