Hi there,

Q: How to find out a "Product Area ID" for each respective Product Area?

Use Case:
We are restructuring our Ideation Product Areas and we would like to change the Product Area of hundreds of Ideas - in bulk.

According to the API Documentation (see screenshot below) we could change each Idea’s product Area through an API Action → meaning we could do it in bulk with a Google Sheet and a Zapier Workflow.

The Documentation (see yellow box in the screenshot) talks about “Product Area ID” But where can I find it?
I looked everywhere in the backend but can only find the name of a Product Area, not an ID.

Can someone point me in the right direction?


 

 

 

……

 

Another question: for the string “id” does it mean the Topic ID for the Idea? (the one found at the end of the URL, or in the Topic Export).
Or is it a different type of ID?

Hi @Daniele Cmty 

You can use the following endpoint to retrieve all Product Areas and their IDs: https://api2-us-west-2.insided.com/docs/community/#tag/ProductAreas/operation/getProductAreaList

 

Regarding the “id” string, correct, that should be the topic ID for the Idea in question.

Hi @Zach B,

thank you for your answer.

I’m not an API expert; How do I actually do that?

Can I work with Zapier and a google sheet to get that list?

 

Best,

Hi @Daniele Cmty, you do need to have some familiarity with API work for this. I’d be happy to pull the list for you if you’d like to send me a private message with your community URL.

Hi @Zach B I asked a second question, maybe you didn’t see that:

 

Another question: for the string “id” does it mean the Topic ID for the Idea? (the one found at the end of the URL, or in the Topic Export).
Or is it a different type of ID, like e.g. Idea ID?

 

Do you have any clue?

Hi Daniele, see my first reply above. It is indeed the number you see at the end of the URL 🙂
