User categories in admin area missing (version 17.0.2)


I’ve updated gitlab from to 17.0.2 and now in the admin area, in uses, I only see “users” and “Cohorts”. Previously (16.x.x) there were options liked “Pending approval” for example. Are they gone in v17 or do they need to be activated?

Thank you.

You have to use the filters, eg:

That worked…it was more intuitive the previous way though.

Yup agreed, it caught me out too :slight_smile:

Thanks for the solution here. Beware…this is CASE SENSITIVE. If you enter ‘state’ ‘=’ ‘Pending approval’ you will get no results. It has to be ‘State’ (capital S).

I can’t stand the removal of the category buttons!
