Find user by Resource identifier

Hello, i get the content of a confluence page by the REST-Api. Now there is a link to a user like this:

<ac:link><ri:user ri:userkey="ff8080813fbbab90013fbbac8f580027" /></ac:link>

Now is the question: How can i get the user of this userkey there? In the confluence-documentation is described how to get the user by a key(username) or a full name:

How can i get the user by this ri:userkey?

You can find the user with the folllowing SQL query:

select lower_username from user_mapping where user_key='ff8080813fbbab90013fbbac8f580027';

And what if I don't have an access to the database, I have only REST access.

Guys? Any thoughts here?

Hi smile any information about this ?
