ory get identity

ory get identity

Get one or more identities by their ID(s)


This command gets all the details about an identity. To get an identity by some selector, e.g. the recovery email address, use the list command in combination with jq.

We have to admit, this is not easy if you don't speak jq fluently. What about opening an issue and telling us what predefined selectors you want to have?

ory get identity [id-1] [id-2] [id-n] [flags]


To get the identities with the recovery email address at the domain "", run:

{{ .CommandPath }} $({{ .Root.Name }} ls identities --format json | jq -r 'map(select(.recovery_addresses[].value | endswith(""))) | .[].id')


      --format string                     Set the output format. One of table, json, yaml, json-pretty, and jsonpath. (default "default")
