You can use curl command from cli to get the node identity using the following command:

curl -sS -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"id":1, "jsonrpc":"2.0", "method": "system_localPeerId"}' http://localhost:9933/

Just replace the rpc url if you have hosted your node somewhere or if accessing the node locally than the above command is good to go.
