@janardhan -

Are you referring to a development method via Miro’s API or a native command? If you mean natively I don’t believe there’s any way to see user e-mail addresses in a board, but assuming you have access to the team’s Active Users view (by clicking on the team “gear” icon in the Dashboard) you could see their e-mail addresses under their user names in the list of users.

@janardhan - It does seem like you are referring to using the Miro Developer Platform, therefore I am moving this post to the Developer Platform and APIs category.

As @Kiron Bondale mentioned, the currentUser email will not be stored in the board, otherwise anyone could see this using a browser’s developer tools. It is my limited understanding that you would use the SDK to get the object creator’s ID and then I assume you could use the REST API to get more user details - more info on this can be found in the developer platform documentation.

Hi @janardhan,


You can use the Get Current User REST API.


A cURL example would be (don’t forget to replace {access_token} by your access_token)


curl --request GET \
--url \
--header 'Authorization: Bearer {access_token}'
