Note

Groups and projects are synonymous terms. Your {PROJECT-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.

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

You cannot use this endpoint to return information on an API Key. Request the Get One API Key endpoint to get this information.

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

GET /users/{USER-ID}
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.

The following query parameters are optional:

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

Flag that indicates 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, the response body includes:

Name
Description
status
HTTP response code
envelope
