How to get Field ID without running a test REST API call

I am new to Tadabase and I am using the REST API quite a bit.

When I create a new table, I need to know the id of each of the fields. However, the only way I seem to be able to do that is to actually make a query against the table via REST and retrieve the results. Is there any way to see the ID for each field from the UI?

Hi @ms_2021

Sorry I don’t have a screenshot for this at the moment but I’ll do my best to explain.

  1. Go to the Data Builder
  2. View the “Records” tab of a data table
  3. Double click on any field title of an existing field to open a window to view/modify field information.
  4. Alternatively, from the “Fields” tab of the data table - you can click edit field.
  5. In the top-right corner of this window, you’ll see the field ID

Thanks Tim! That worked.

@tim.young Has this feature stopped working? I no longer see the Field ID in the Data Builder.

Go to the screen with the Fields overview, right side you see a small wheel icon. Click on it and it shows the option of “Show field slug”.
That’s the Field ID.
