API username query

I’ve run into a slight problem.

My dev is on holiday and my client has asked me to supply our API_username.

Is this something I can easily locate?

Any help/ guidance would be massively appreciated.

Thanks in advance


It depends which user name is being used - check out here and you will see the API keys that have been generated and work from there -



See /admin/api/keys. You can have keys either for a particular user, or there is a master key that works for all users. If they have the “all users” api key, then the username is whatever user they want it to be.


Thanks guys. Very helpful

That means I can use my username that is in the url whe the API is set to all ?

Yes, you can use your username or “system” as the api_username. Unless you are trying to get user specific information like the notifications of a user, then you would need to use their username.
