The GetNameFromUserIdAsync Players function will send a query to the Roblox website asking what the username is of the account with the given Player/UserId|UserId.

This method errors if no account exists with the given UserId. If you aren’t certain such an account exists, it’s recommended to wrap calls to this function with pcall. In addition, you can manually cache results to make future calls with the same UserId fast. See the code samples to learn how to do this.


Name Type Default Description
