System ID

Quick Links

A system ID is a unique identifier that is automatically generated when you name a new object. This identifier can be used to reference the object in templates, tags, scripts, or through the API. Use caution when changing the ID on existing objects, as it can affect existing references to the object.

You can use the system ID lookup tools to find the system ID for an object, or you can find an object based on the system ID.

The following reference tools with expandable sections contain information you can use in your scripts. To access the reference tools, go to Setup > Development > Scripts and open a script file. Workflow displays the reference tools on the right side of the Script Editor workspace:

See Scripts and Script Editor for more information about scripting.
