How do I find a field ID, either in Content Editor or Sitecore Rocks?

I am going through the 8.2 SXD training.

Chapter 11 is about Indexing and searching.

I am trying to create a custom index, and the instructions say to add the Field ID of 3 fields, one is from my template and two are from a base template.

How do I find the field ID?


Also, in Sitecore Rocks, when I hover over my template, I get two ID's:

ID: xxx

Template ID: yyy

For a template, what's the difference?




  • In Sitecore eveything is an Item, and even a template has a Template, the TemplateID, /sitecore/templates/System/Templates/Template {AB86861A-6030-46C5-B394-E8F99E8B87DB}

    But For the search index..

    For the Field ID go in Sitecore to the Field Item and take the "Item ID"
