Get a User by ID

Note

Groups and projects are synonymous terms. Your {GROUP-ID} is the same as your project id. For existing groups, your group/project id remains the same. This page uses the more familiar term group when referring to descriptions. The endpoint remains as stated in the document.

Base URL: https://{OPSMANAGER-HOST}:{PORT}/api/public/v1.0

Resource

GET /users/{USER-ID}

You can always retrieve your own user account. Otherwise, you must be a global user or you must have the user admin role in at least one group that is common between you and the user you are retrieving.

Request Path Parameters

Parameter Type Description
USER-ID string (Required.) Unique identifier of the user that you want to retrieve. To retrieve the USER-ID for a user, see Get All Users in One Project.

Request Query Parameters

This endpoint may use any of the HTTP request query parameters available to all Ops Manager API resources. These are all optional.

Name Type Description Default
pretty boolean Flag indicating whether the response body should be in a prettyprint format. false
envelope boolean

Flag indicating whether or not to wrap the response in an envelope.

Some API clients cannot access the HTTP response headers or status code. To remediate this, set envelope=true in the query.

For endpoints that return one result, response body includes:

status
HTTP response code
envelope
The expected response body
false

Request Body Parameters

This endpoint does not use HTTP request body parameters.

Name Type Description
emailAddress string Email address.

The name of the role. Accepted values are:
