Finding Qualtrics IDs

Introduction

All Qualtrics API requests require specific parameters to construct the needed URL. Many of these parameters will be Qualtrics IDs. For example, if you’re downloading the raw data for your survey, you’ll need to know the survey ID. The majority of these IDs can be found in your account Qualtrics Ids page.

Locating Qualtrics IDs

  1. Click the silhouette in the top right corner of your account.

Locating Qualtrics IDs by Inspecting the Element

In some cases, the parameters you’ll need to create your API request will require IDs that cannot be found in the Qualtrics Ids page. Some examples of these parameters are UserID, GroupType, and DivisionID. If you’re implementing an API request under the Administration Requests section of our documentation, you’ll likely need to use the Inspect Element tool.

Inspect Element is a developer tool that allows you to see the HTML, CSS, and JavaScript that is currently on a webpage. When looking for Qualtrics IDs, we’ll only be concerned with the HTML of a webpage.

To access the Web Inspector
