Radosgw list current created users

I haven’t found in the Ceph Object Gateway docs a command to get the radosgw active users, so I was looking for it and finally inspecting the objects inside the rados gateway pools, I found the way to get the list:

# rados -p .users.uid ls | grep -v buckets

And another way using radosgw-admin command (recently discovered):

# radosgw-admin metadata list user

# radosgw-admin user info --uid=user1
    "user_id": "user1",
    "display_name": "User 1",
    "email": "",

    "subusers": [],
    "keys": [],
    "swift_keys": [],
    "caps": [],

        "enabled": false,
        "max_size_kb": -1,
        "max_objects": -1
    "temp_url_keys": []
