This page provides self identity information. This is useful for getting the properly cased username and account status while at the same time performing basic authentication (such as when the client first opens).
Warning: This is intended for internal use only. 3rd parties using authentication and security-related API calls is highly discouraged. See this warning for more information.
Information returned to this call includes (key - description:
- username - the properly cased/formatted username on record
- accountStatus - see Account Status for possible values
No information will be returned if authentication fails. Authentication for this call will succeed even if the account is banned or inactive, as the main intention of this call is to perform username/password authentication and discover account problems.
Potential Future Features:
- HTTP PUT support for editing account information
- retrieval of additional account information
