Determining your site's siteID

The siteID for your course, portfolio, or project site is the string of numbers and letters appearing immediately after site/ in the site's URL.

For example, consider the following URL:

http://sakai-deathstar.org/portal/site/836869b1-3997-4f29-803b-986be9fd270c

In the example above, the siteID is 836869b1-3997-4f29-803b-986be9fd270c.

Additionally, site leaders can find the siteID in the Resources tool. In your site's menubar, click Resources, and then click Manage/Download Multiple Resources to view the siteID.

Setting an alias for the siteID

You can set an easy-to-remember alias for the siteID of any site you own:

  1. In your site's menubar, click Site Info.

  2. Click Edit Site Information.

  3. Next to "Site URL Alias", you'll see the part of the site URL common to all sites, followed by a text box. Enter the text you'd like to use in place of your siteID in the text box.

  4. At the bottom of the page, click Continue.

  5. Review your changes, and then click Finish.
