Opaque user id fetching username

Hello, just started working with the developer rig, and I’m stuck at getting username from Opaque user id.
I was looking into kraken API but that only works with user ids.


You can’t.

If you want the actual identity/name of a viewer, you have the extension to request and the user then to grant it.

In the extension settings on your dev dashboard there’s a setting “request user identity link”, you need to enable this and then either trigger it in your frontend code or have the user click the little icon on the bottom, then you’ll receive the actual user ID that you can then use for API requests.


Thanks, I was wondering what that option was for :smiley:
