How do I get the directory ID for use in the Atlassian SCIM Users API?

I would like to use this API BUT I am blocked because I don't know how to get the Directory ID.


P.S. It would be nice to add a SCIM tag to posts.


Here is some background/context:

I have a personal sandbox org and my user has site admin rights.

I am trying to makes calls following the guides here:

I have access to an admin user account on a sandbox environment.  I am able to successfully authenticate myself, but now need help finding the directory ID in order to make successful calls.

One example endpoint I would like to hit is this:

var options = {

   method: 'GET',

   url: '{directoryId}/Users/{userId}?attributes={attributes}',

   headers: {

      'Authorization': 'Bearer ',

      'Accept': 'application/json'




I also looked at the steps described here

Go to []( and click your organization.

2. Click **Directory**, then click **User provisioning**.

3. Click the **Directory** tab, then click the **Regenerate API key** button.

4. Click **Regenerate key**.

5. Copy the organization ID and the API key to a safe place. Once you close the API key information screen, we won't show you this information again.

6. Click **Done**."


After step 1, when logged into my environment, I am unable to find the "Directory" or "User provisioning" tabs.  Instead I directly land on user management:

Hi @Jared Praino ,

As the first step of the quoted documentation says, in order to see the Directory tab you need to select an organization:

Go to and click your organization.




Now, it can be the case that you don't have any organization configured and that's why you are sent straight to the User Management of your instance instead. In this case, please review below links for more details on Organizations and how to setup one:



Let me know if this helps.
