  • data_user: A tibble::tibble() of all users associated with the project. One row represents one user.

  • success: A boolean value indicating if the operation was apparently successful.

  • status_codes: A collection of http status codes, separated by semicolons. There is one code for each batch attempted.

  • outcome_messages: A collection of human readable strings indicating the operations' semicolons. There is one code for each batch attempted. In an unsuccessful operation, it should contain diagnostic information.

  • elapsed_seconds: The duration of the function.
