Overview

Every Item in Alloy is assigned a unique item ID. This ID is generated by the system and generally used internally by the application. However, you can also use the ID directly particularly when searching for an item. So we have provided you with an easy method to obtain the ID.

Note

User accounts are not assigned an Item ID.

When you access an item and it is displayed you will find an icon in the top left corner above the item name.

When you select this icon then the Item ID for the selected object is copied to the system clipboard. Asset items and Reports generally appear as a long alphanumeric code, e.g.:

5c922245ff5c1300b4808052

Standard Designs, Workflows, User Groups and Interfaces are identified by an alpha code e.g.:

designs_attachmentTypes
designInterfaces_addressable
userGroups_contactManagers

User Designs, Workflows, User Groups and Interfaces are prefixed by an alpha code and an alphanumeric code e.g.:

designs_bollardType3_5caf1493ff5c130f70760bd4

Item IDs can be pasted directly into the search field to find an item quickly.
