    Has anyone come up with this? I am having the same issue.

    Why separate the IDs?

    I can't speak to why the IDs are different, but I constantly need to look up IDs for the API, and I've found the fastest way to do this is using Postman. There's a good pinned article at https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115000282125-Beginners-Guide-Get-Data-From-Wrike-s-API-Without-Coding-via-Postman describing how to do this.

    My go-to calls are:

    I then search the response body within Postman to get the IDs I need based on the folder or task name.

    Thanks for the response, Laura Boylan, that is currently one of our team's go-to solution other than pulling this id via the Folder/Task Permalink.

    One of the most recent issues we are finding with this, however, is trying to grab the ID for something like spaces. During a direct GET call to the api endpoint GET spacesย https://developers.wrike.com/documentation/api/methods/get-spaces

    Where the spaces return a 500 error and no permalink is visibly found as grabbing a folder id or task id.ย

    Russell Wilkie - That's odd. I'm not seeing any problem with the response returned by https://www.wrike.com/api/v4/spaces on our account. Wrike Support may need to assist if you're getting 500 errors here.
