Find the User ID via the GoodData Portal

Steps:

  1. Log in to the GoodData Portal at https://secure.gooddata.com/.
  2. Click Manage on the project toolbar.
    The administration page opens.
  3. Click the Project & Users tab.
  4. Click the user whose ID you want to find.
    The user's profile page opens.
  5. Check the URL in the browser address bar. For example:

    https://secure.gooddata.com/#s=/gdc/projects/e863ii0azrnng2zt4fuu81ifgqtyeoj21|profilePage|/gdc/account/profile/r1rphnwwxfk60uuwtt6q1bjwz5akmlme

    The user ID is the string that follows the /gdc/account/profile/ segment. In this case, the user ID is r1rphnwwxfk60uuwtt6q1bjwz5akmlme.

Find the User ID via the Gray Pages

Steps:

  1. Log in to the GoodData Portal at https://secure.gooddata.com/.

  2. Go to the the following URL where {project_id} is your project ID. If you do not know your project ID, see Find the Project ID.

    https://secure.gooddata.com/gdc/projects/{project_id}/users?link=1&offset=0&limit=100

    For example, your URL will look like the following:

    https://secure.gooddata.com/gdc/projects/e863ii0azrnng2zt4fuu81ifgqtyeoj21/users?link=1&offset=0&limit=100

    The gray page with all the project users opens.

  3. On this gray page, locate the user whose ID you want to find, and find their self link. For example:

    "self": "/gdc/account/profile/r1rphnwwxfk60uuwtt6q1bjwz5akmlme"

    The user ID is the string that follows the /gdc/account/profile/ segment. In this case, the user ID is r1rphnwwxfk60uuwtt6q1bjwz5akmlme.


If the user that you are looking for is not on the list, change the offset=0&limit=100 segment in the URI to greater values.

For example, setting this segment to offset=100&limit=200 will return 200 users starting with the 100th user.

Use the API to list all users in a project or the API to get information about a user.
