How to find a specific user's User ID

If you need to find a single user's ID, you can use Leanplum and custom segments in the Users dashboard to filter down all of your users. 

If, for example, you are trying to find your own User ID to add yourself to an A/B test, you can:

  1. Log into your App
  2. Then, in the Leanplum User dashboard, apply the following segments
    • timing > Session start in user's timezone > is since = "2 minutes ago"
    • localization > city = your city
    • technology > device model = your device

This will show all users that have: 1) logged in recently 2) in your city 3) on your model of device.  If you need to narrow it down further, you can do so using more segments.

To see more info on how to use segments to find or target users, see our section on Personalization.
