Im looking to get user information by email address using the latest version of the wordpress restapi.
I have registered the user email field and it returns on both the "/wp-json/wp/v2/users/" and the "/wp-json/wp/v2/users/" calls but im looking for a way to basically get user by email. I cant seem to find a way to filter or search by email field though, any thoughts?

You can use the search argument

    The search argument does not search emails, it just searches the fields that are returned (name, description, slug, and a few others).
