Obtaining a Project ID from the Console

When calling APIs, you need to specify the project ID in certain URLs. To do so, you need to obtain the project ID first. Perform the following operations to obtain the project ID:

  1. Register an account and log in to the management console.
  2. Hover the cursor on the username and choose My Credentials from the drop-down list.
  3. On the Projects tab of the My Credentials page, view the project ID in the project list.

If there are multiple projects, unfold the target region and obtain the project ID from the Project ID column.

Obtaining a Project ID by Calling an API

A project ID can be obtained by calling a specific API. For details, see Querying Project Information Based on the Specified Criteria.

The API for obtaining a project ID is GET https://{Endpoint}/v3/projects/. {Endpoint} indicates the endpoint of IAM, which can be obtained from Regions and Endpoints.

The following is an example response. The value of id is the project ID.
