Find the folder ID#

To perform operations on folders, you need to supply the ID. You can find this:

  • In the URL of the folder
  • By searching for it using the node. You need to do this if using MS 365 (where OneDrive uses SharePoint behind the scenes):
    1. Select Resource > Folder.
    2. Select Operation > Search.
    3. In Query, enter the folder name.
    4. Select Test step. n8n runs the query and returns data about the folder, including an id field containing the folder ID.
