[sdk]: identity service if get_application_credential method could use user name

Good morning, 

Thanks for replying back to me. I tried to use the fine_user to get the
user id by username, but it seems like not all the user can use the
find_user method. 

If I do: find_user = conn.identity.find_user(name_or_id='catherine'), it
will show me that "You are not authorized to perform the requested
action: identity:get_user". 

If I do: find_user = conn.identity.find_user(name_or_id='my_user_Id'),
then it works fine. 

But I would like to use the username to find the user and get the id, so
I'm not sure why in this case find_user only work with id not name. 

Thanks and have a great day!

If I do get_application_credential(user='catherine', application_credential = 'app_cred_id'), then it will show me an error that "You are not authorized to perform the requested action: identity:get_application_credential". Is there any method that no need user info, can just use the application credential id to get the expiration date? We also didn't find any documentation about the application credential in openstacksdk identity service docs.
