Locate identifiers for forms, properties, and other elements in xMatters

Some REST methods use Universally Unique Identifiers (UUIDs) to identify components such as forms and properties. Using these identifiers is an easy and reliable method of identifying exactly the form or element you want. You can access these identifiers in the web user interface while you are creating your forms, or by logging in and navigating to the element you want to identify.

In most cases, the identifier for each element is marked with the UUID or API icon. Clicking the icon will open a dialog box containing the identifier, which you can then copy and paste into your REST method.

Click the API icon to view the identifier for a form element.
