What is my cloud id

Simran Khalsa September 25, 2018

According to this documentation In order to use the api the specified URL would be{cloudid}/{api}. What is {cloudid} and {api} referencing and where do I find them within my site?

Hi Simran,

As referred to the OAuth 2.0 authorization code grants (3LO) for apps documentation:  

  • client_id: (required) Set this to the Client ID for your app. Find this in App details for your app in app managementFor example, 11223344-a1b2-3b33-c444-def123456789
  • {api} is the base path and name of the API. For example, /rest/api/2/project for the project endpoint in the Jira REST API. 

Hope this explains

Cheers, Syauqi

The atlassian team response seems to be incorrect or perhaps outdated? -- it would seem you need to make a request to with your token to get your "cloudId"(comes back as "id") -- which is NOT your apps client_id.

I did not succeed with the above approach to get the cloud id.

One other easy way to get the cloud id is to go to

Click on your "site" of interest and you will get the Cloud id in the URL 

Resulting URL Example:<Your_cloud_id>users

@Vahe Vardanyan I am also asking myself this question. Were you able to get this resolved?

The simplest way to find your site's Cloud Id is via:

Which, when you replace "my-site-name" with your Jira's site name, will return the following


 This is really poorly documented, and the only mention I saw of it was a one liner on the new Forms API docs

Edit: This endpoint is also documented in the main JSW API docs, although again only a one liner
