How to find a Site ID, Group ID, Page ID and Filter ID
By Sean Needham
This article explains Site ID, Group ID, and Page ID. These are values that may be requested when configuring integrations with the Siteimprove platform (e.g. Tableau, Power BI). They are also useful when using the Siteimprove API.
A site ID is a unique identification number allocated to your website when added to the Siteimprove platform.
You can find the site ID in the following two ways:
- When in the platform, the Site ID is presented as the last number in the URL when on the Siteimprove Dashboard for a selected site. For the URL shown below, the Site ID is 555.
- If you have API access, you can query the following API end-point
Group ID is the identification number for a specific group. Siteimprove uses both Content (e.g. QA, Accessibility, Policy) and Analytics groups.
Content Group ID
To find a Content Group ID, go to Settings > Groups, then select the Group you would like the ID for.
The number shown in the URL after the parameter ‘groupId=’ is the ID for the selected group.
Analytics Group ID
This is the Group ID used, for example, when using the Tableau or Power BI integrations.
Go to Analytics > Analytics Overview
Select the Group for which you need the Group ID in the dropdown on the top of the page.
The Group ID is then presented in the URL of your browser. To make sure you are looking at the Group ID, select a different Group to see the Group ID changes respectively. In this example URL given below, the Group ID is 999.
The image below shows the Analytics Overview page in the platform with the "Product" group selected. In this case, the URL again shows the Group ID of 999.
Page ID is the identification number for a specific page.
To find a Page ID for a specific page, view the page report for the page by selecting the page within the Siteimprove platform under Quality Assurance > Inventory > Pages.
The Page ID is the number shown after the Parameter ‘pageId=’ in the URL of the page report.
Filter ID is the identification number used for a specific filter in Siteimprove Analytics.
When using the Siteimprove API you can use a Filter ID (filter_id) to identify a filter for the API request.
To find the Filter ID go to Analytics > Analytics Overview in the Siteimprove platform and select the filter from the dropdown along the top of the page.
When activated the URL contains the filter ID just after the time period within the URL.
API reference documentation can be found on the Siteimprove Developer page.
