How to get the ID of a Google Shared Drive (formerly Team Drives)

Find a Google Shared Drive ID

There are times you may need the ID of a Google Shared Drive. Perhaps you’re working on an integration or with Google’s APIs.

Thankfully the ID of a Shared Drive is extremely easy to find (but ironically I could not confirm this information easily … so I wanted to post it here.)

The Shared Drive ID is simply the end of the URL when viewing the folder via Drive.Google.com … it’s the jumbled part at the end.

 

It’s everything after https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/
