The Users UI Module, or ui-users, is a Stripes UI module used for searching, sorting, filtering, viewing, editing and creating users. (A "Stripes UI module" is an NPM module that adheres to certain conventions that allow it to function within the Stripes UI framework that is part of FOLIO.)

The Users UI module is important because it is the first user-facing module to have undergone development. FOLIO has several server-side modules that run under Okapi (mod-auth, mod-configuration, mod-metadata, mod-files, etc.), but mod-users is the only one that has a corresponding UI component. Accordingly, the Users UI module serves as a testbed for new Stripes functionality and a place to shake down those parts of the UI design that will be shared between all FOLIO applications.


First, a Stripes UI development server needs to be running. See the quick start instructions, which explain how to run it using packages from the FOLIO NPM repository or use some parts from local in-development versions.

The "ui-users" module is already enabled by that default configuration.

The other parts that are needed are the Okapi gateway, various server-side modules (including mod-users), and sample data. Ways to achieve that are described in Running a complete FOLIO system.

(At some point, this process will be dramatically streamlined; but at present, this software is primarily for developers to work on, rather than for users to use.)

Build and serve

To build and serve ui-users in isolation for development purposes, run the "start" package script.

$ yarn start

The default configuration assumes an Okapi instance is running on http://localhost:9130 with tenant "diku". The options --okapi and --tenant can be provided to match your environment.

$ yarn start --okapi http://localhost:9130 --tenant diku

See the serve command reference in stripes-cli for a list of available options. Note: Stripes-cli options can be persisted in configuration file for convenience.


Integration tests require a running Okapi. The default configuration expects Okapi running on http://localhost:9130 with tenant "diku". To build and run integration tests for ui-users with these defaults, run the test-int script.

$ yarn test-int

To view tests while they are run, provide the --show option.

$ yarn test-int --show

To skip the build step and run integration tests against a build that is already running, provide the URL.

$ yarn test-int --url

As a convenience, --local can be used in place of --url http://localhost:3000 for running tests a development server that has already been started.

$ yarn test-int --local
