Account Id using the Rest api

I have seen a couple of posts, but am not getting a good answer to how I can find the accountId of the user. I know the user email address, so what I have been doing is following this link below:

I type in the email address as both the username and key and I get this back:

I even tried with the display name

[    {        "username""",        "accountId""unknown"    }]

Why am I getting an unknown?

Hello Chan,

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

Testing using the details you provided, to be honest, I couldn't make the "Get account IDs" work, but the good thing is that there are two other options to get the account id.

The first option is to use the "Group and user picker" API that will return the information about the user using their email address.

curl --request GET \
--url '' \
--user '' \
--header 'Accept: application/json'

The second option is to use REST API call below directly in the browser:

Please, give it a try and let us know how it goes.


Wow... Thanks a lot Angélica. This is amazing.....worked like a charm!
