ory identities get

ory identities get#

Get one or more identities by ID


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 identities get <id-0 [id-1 ...]> [flags]


To get the identities with the recovery email address at the domain "", run:
$ kratos identities get $(kratos identities list --format json | jq -r 'map(select(.recovery_addresses[].value | endswith(""))) | .[].id')


-f, --format string Set the output format. One of table, json, and json-pretty. (default "default")
-h, --help help for get
-q, --quiet Be quiet with output printing.

Options inherited from parent commands#

--endpoint string Use a different endpoint. (default "")
-p, --project string Must be set to your Ory Cloud Project Slug. Alternatively set using the ORY_PROJECT_ID environmental variable.
