Fetching users via external IDs

I would like to fetch a user by his external ID. I have tried the 'query=ext_id' via the API but it doesn't work. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks.

Agreed.  Since the external-id must be unique it seems like that could be a good way to fetch users in addition to the id and the email.

Any updates on this one?

I am now working on sync application. Fetching user by external will save me a lot of HTTP request,

 

Thank you.
