Rest API "Get user" request

Hello, my name is Zach Oakes and I am a software engineer with Identity Automation and I am trying to query my test data with Postman via Rest API. Each time I start the query I get an error and I am unsure how to resolve this. Any help would be appreciated!!

Hi Zach,

With the API you have to use the API id of the entity (instead of the number you used 133304833), i.e. the value of External ID you'd see in the User properties.

Hope this helps,

Hi Ophir Kenig,

Thank you for your feedback! How do I obtain the API id of the entity exactly? I am unfamiliar of how to do that

Hi Zach,

How did you get the user number? If you used the Clarizen UI add the External Id column to the view (use the gear icon -> columns) and use it.

If you use the API (e.g. some query option), you get the id with the result.

Check the documentation for more information.

Hope this helps,

Ophir
