Confluence : userkey to usre name convrsion

Hello,

I need to translate <ri:user ri:userkey="xxxxxxx" />  to user name using REST api. I am geting <ri:user ...> element when get storage of confluence content using following REST call.

https://example.com:8080/confluence/rest/api/content/24183304?expand=body.storage

To convert to user, i tried following  

http://example.com:8080/jira/rest/api/2/user?key=xxxxxxx

but it returned user not exists error message

{"errorMessages":["The user with the key 'xxxxxxx' does not exist"],"errors":{}}

 

Thanks

Hi Munjai,

Instead of using this rest call, you can use this one below to get the user key and username for the page:

confluence/rest/api/content/24183304?getpage

I hope this helps!

Cheers,

Rodrigo

Thanks Rodrigo, I got clue from above and solved it using different view https://example.com:8080/confluence/rest/api/content/24183304?expand=body.export_view
