Fields
id

string

The ID the API uses to uniquely identify the user.

primaryEmail

string

The user's primary email address.

kind

string

The type of the API resource. For Photo resources, this is admin#directory#user#photo.

etag

string

ETag of the resource.

photoData

string (bytes format)

The user photo's upload data in web-safe Base64 format in bytes. This means:

  • The slash (/) character is replaced with the underscore (_) character.
  • The plus sign (+) character is replaced with the hyphen (-) character.
  • The equals sign (=) character is replaced with the asterisk (*).
  • For padding, the period (.) character is used instead of the RFC-4648 baseURL definition which uses the equals sign (=) for padding. This is done to simplify URL-parsing.
  • Whatever the size of the photo being uploaded, the API downsizes it to 96x96 pixels.

A base64-encoded string.

mimeType

string

The MIME type of the photo. Allowed values are JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP, TIFF, and web-safe base64 encoding.

width

Width of the photo in pixels.
