Hello @hi-oka,

The right identifier of a user (and many other entities in Bitbucket REST API) is the uuid field. Unlike nickname, which can change over time, uuid always remains same for the given user.

For instance, request to this URL will return display names of team members along with their uuids and pagination parameters required to fetch all pages of the response:,values.uuid,page,next

Note that uuid contains curly braces and should be used like that anywhere in the REST API or URLs.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.


Hello Daniil,

Thank you for  your answer.

I understood that uuid is identifier.

But I have noticed.

This API is get team members, does not retrieve team plan-users.

Is there an API to get a list of plan-users? (URL :

what is xxxx in the below call?,values.uuid,page,next
