How to Find Object IDs in Searches

Search for a Location or Resource

Location of IDs in URLImage: The location ID is located in the URL in your browser after "location/" 

To obtain an individual item's ID, first go to the location's details view or resource's details view. Highlight the URL in your browser then copy the number between the words, "location" or "resource" and "details," in the URL. That number is the item's ID.


“123” in the example URL is the location's item ID number.
