Retrieve Users with the Get Users by Email Endpoint

Versionv3

The GET /api/v2/users-by-email endpoint allows you to search for users using their email addresses. The search looks for an exact match to the provided email address and is case-sensitive.

This endpoint is immediately consistent, and as such, we recommend that you use this endpoint for:

  • User searches run during the authentication process.
  • User searches run as part of the account linking process.

Prerequisite

To use the user search endpoints, you'll need to obtain a valid Access Token and provide it in the header of your call (replace the YOUR_MGMT_API_ACCESS_TOKEN placeholder value).

Syntax

Required Scopes: read:users
