URI ID / uriid

Is PageSeeder’s internal identifier, as opposed to the document ID which is designed to be a public identifier.

Because it is generated, the URI ID of a document will be different if it is uploaded to a different PageSeeder server, whereas the document ID, being user assigned rather than generated, stays the same.

URI IDs are created for documentsfolders and URLs.

In the API, the URI ID is available as:

  • A uriid attribute in XML element <uri>.
  • A uriid object property in JSON.

In PSML, it is available as the @id attribute of the <document> element.

The URI ID can be found in the document info and metadata panel.
