[solved]Where is my user ID in GitLab.com?


When calling GitLab.com’s Add a member to a group or project API to add an user as the member to a project, the user ID (integer) must be provided. Where can GitLab.com users get their user ID’s?

I can not find mine here and here.



Try https://gitlab.com/api/v4/users?username=??? where ??? is your username. This will only work if you are already logged into gitlab.

Alternatively, go to https://gitlab.com/profile/account and copy your Private token. Then run the following command from a bash-like terminal:

curl --header “PRIVATE-TOKEN: AAAA” https://gitlab.com/api/v4/users?username=BBBB

where AAAA is your private token and BBBB is your username.



Thank you a lot!

It will be nice to see this instruction be added to FAQ.
