Your first request

From RoAPI

At this point, you’re ready to use most of the endpoints that take in GET requests on these domains, as they won’t require authentication, like users.roblox.com/v1/users/userId. This endpoint returns response data that looks like this.

{
  "description": "Welcome to the Roblox profile! This is where you can check out the newest items in the...",
  "created": "2006-02-27T21:06:40.3Z",
  "isBanned": false,
  "id": 1,
  "name": "ROBLOX",
  "displayName": "ROBLOX"
}

You’ll probably use this endpoint along with other endpoints on users.roblox.com quite a lot, as they are extremely useful for grabbing information about a user.

import requests

user_id = 1  # User ID
user_req = requests.get(f"https://users.roblox.com/v1/users/{user_id}")
user_data = user_req.json()

print("Name:", user_data["name"])
print("Display Name:", user_data["displayName"])
print("User ID:", user_data["id"])
print("Description:")
print(user_data["description"])
