How to obtain your UID and GID

Last updated on May 5th, 2023 at 12:50 pm

In this guide I’ll show you how to find your UID and GID. These are required for most of the guides I publish.

Step 1

Head into your Control Panel and open ‘Terminal & SNMP’.

Step 2

‘Tick’ Enable SSH service, then press Apply.

Step 3

Now we need to SSH into our Synology NAS. I will be using Windows and an application called PuTTY. If you are using Linux or Mac, you will need to find an alternative software to all allow you to SSH in.

Open PuTTY. All we need to add here is the Host Name, this is your Synology NAS IP address. For me, this is Press Open.

Step 4

When you press Open, you will now see this box. Press Accept.

Step 5

You will now need to enter your main Synology NAS username, for me this is polza. Now enter your password and press ‘Enter‘ on your keyboard.

Important: When entering your password, you will not see your password displayed on the screen.

Step 6

Once you have entered your password, type in ‘id yourusername‘. Press ‘Enter‘ on your keyboard.

You will now see the uid and gid details, make a ‘note‘ of yours. For my Docker username, my UID is 1032 and my GID is 100. You can now exit this window to exit PuTTY.

Step 7

Go back to Step 2 to find your way back to Terminal & SNMP. ‘Un-Tick’ Enable SSH service, then press Apply.
