How To Display sysID on Form & List View?

Hello Spectaculars,

Welcome to the new blog.

Recently, during an administrative task, I need to see sysID in the list view. Actually, having sysID in the list view was saving my time, else I need to use script and add logs, etc, and then collect all sysID and process it.

So, I tried thinking – Can I add sysID as a column in the List view? And Bingo! I got it.

So, Below I am enumerating steps of adding sysID in List and Form View as well. Follow these simple steps and say – Cheese!!!

Adding sysID column in List View

  • Open your instance
  • Go to System UI -> Lists
  • Find the Table, View & User (if any), where you want to display sysID
  • Open that record
  • Scroll down, in the List Elements-> Click New Button
  • In Element field, enter “sys_id” (database name of sysID)
  • Add Position in the Position field (where you want to display sysID)
  • Submit or save the record
  • Now Clear the cache (cache.do)
  • Open the List and you can see sysID in the list.

Adding sysID column in the Form View

Adding in the form needs a few more steps, let’s discuss.

  • Open your instance
  • Go to System UI -> Forms
  • Find the Table, View & User (if any), where you want to display sysID
  • Open that record
  • Open the section where you want to add the sysID field (Sys UI Section)
  • Scroll down, in the List Elements-> Click New Button
  • In Element field, enter “sys_id” (database name of sysID)
  • Add Position in the Position field (where you want to display sysID)
