API search query and userID

Since today, searching a user on Atlassian Jira API no longer gives the user ID !

Where can I get the userID ??

curl -D- -u 'user':'pass' -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json" '***t'

   "avatarUrls":      "48x48":"***45/b4fa7808-***-eb131d117b43/128?size=48&s=48",
   "displayName":"G***e S***t",

I have the display name as result but no longer the user ID :(

Found the solution by myself.

UserID is no longer available. We have the use the accountId instead.

So I have to replace 'name': userID by 'id': accountId in all my payloads.

Thanks Jira for the nice documentation.

Hi, do you know how to get the Account ID through the REST API?
