Tutorial How to find UID (userID) and GID (groupID)?

First, you need to SSH into your NAS.

When you are in your NAS with the user you want the ID for, just type id and hit Enter.

Now you'll get something like this:

uid=1031(your_nas_user) gid=100(users) groups=100(users), 101(administrators)

From that, you can read your UID is 1031, user group is 100, administrator group is 101 (if this user as an administrator).

This information is useful and needed for instance when using certain Docker images.

For instance, you can also type id http if you want to know the ID and group for http user.
