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

Thanks for the tutorial. Newbie question: is there any reason to be using an admin user to run docker containers? I have come across different syno apps (specifically some backup apps) that require an admin user for things like connecting to an off-site NAS. Are there any similar requirement for docker containers, or should a user that has almost all privileges except for DSM be able to run the containers?

Follow up questions: Just found out I cannot SSH into my NAS with a non-admin user per the note in the Terminal page of the control panel. Your comment "(if this user is an administrator)" seems to suggest otherwise? So, can I SSH into my NAS with a non-admin user? If so, how? Do I need to somehow figure out my non-admin UID/GID to use with docker instead of my admin user?

You can’t. User has to be admin member

docker runs with root permissions by default
