How to get a user's accountId?

Hi, is there a way to get a user's accountId based on his username or email using jira rest api?

I tried to get it from this endpoint but the accountId param is not in the response anymore : 


I also tried this link but this one it doesn't seems to work at all: 

Thank you

Hi @Andrei Iorga , you can get the account ID from your user profile as mentioned here in this thread:

or via rest api, you can try one of the options mentioned here:

Hi @Sramanth Pandeti I am interested in the rest api option but when I try to get the user details based on his username:


In the official documentation ( ) it says that in the response json should be an accountId field but when I call the endpoint I don't get that field. I read something that they removed it because of GDPR. So this is why I can't use the options mentioned in that thread. If you have any other suggestion I would appreciate. Thank you.
