List user resources


This call returns information about the specified user. Note that currently you can view only your own user information, and so this call is equivalent to the call to Get my information.{username}

This call will only return a successful response if {username} is replaced with your own username.


Case sensitivity

Don't forget to capitalize your username in the same way as you set it when you registered on the BioData Catalyst powered by Seven Bridges.
