About Qualtrics IDs
All Qualtrics API requests require specific parameters to construct the requests. 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 on the Qualtrics IDs tab.
Locating Qualtrics IDs
- Click the user settings icon in the top-right corner of your account.
- Select Account Settings.
- Click Qualtrics IDs.
- Click on any one of your Libraries to find IDs for contact lists (called “panels” here), messages, and other library content.
- Click on the name of any survey to find IDs for questions, quotas, and other survey elements. The survey’s ID is listed next to the survey name.
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 tab. Some examples of these parameters are UserID, GroupType, and DivisionID. If you’re implementing a Brand Administrator API request under the Users, Groups, or Divisions sections of our documentation, you’ll likely need to use the Inspect Element tool.
To access the Web Inspector
- Navigate to the Admin page.
- Click Users.
- Search for the user by using any of the search criteria filters (Username, First Name, Last Name, etc.).
- Right click on the username of the account and select Inspect Element.

- Double click on the UserID to copy.
Here are the common IDs you’ll find by inspecting the element.
