how to get user numerical id by login/email

Added by Nick Tan over 4 years ago

hi, folks

i'm working on a PoC to integration Redmine into our existing system with Redmine REST APIs.
to manager the users via REST user API, i have to pass the user's numerical id as parameter, but there is no API allow me to this id, the workaround is to get all user via "GET /users.xml" and iterate. or access the database directly.

so i'm wondering is there or can you add this kind of API to get the numerical id by user's login or email.

thanks
