Instagram IDs to username

This actor allows you to convert a list of Instagram user IDs to their appropriate usernames.

When scraping posts or comments, Instagram often doesn't give you final user username but only their numerical representation. This actor allows you easily convert them and adds also general user data.

Input

Input is a list of user IDs, e.g.

{
    "ids": ["898537494"]
}

You don't need to use JSON format, the actor allows you to use visual interface

Output

Output is a list of user data containing usernames and user URLs, e.g.

[
    {
        "username": "chizawagames",
        "pk": 898537494,
        "profile_pic_url": "https://scontent-atl3-2.cdninstagram.com/v/t51.2885-19/s150x150/75322217_443843236272081_1698154713637191680_n.jpg?_nc_ht=scontent-atl3-2.cdninstagram.com&_nc_cat=109&_nc_ohc=WDDwSFDUDHgAX8WVXFk&edm=AEF8tYYBAAAA&ccb=7-4&oh=db447812033dfaa22803cfc52e48393d&oe=61A4B454&_nc_sid=a9513d",
        "url": "https://www.instagram.com/chizawagames"
    }
]

The output is also available as CSV, Excel, Xml and other formats
