If you click the “Permanent link” button (after the title), or the Permanent link sharing option (top right), you'll see the unique id of a given document.

You don't need to use underlying db to get the id of your document in this case. If you want a more “human readable” way to create a document you can use parent path,or NXQL if you need to access documents using a more specific logic.

Example with java automation client:

HttpAutomationClient client = new HttpAutomationClient(


Session session = client.getSession("Administrator", "Administrator");

DocumentService ds = new DocumentService(session);

Document doc = ds.createDocument("/path/to/parent", new Document("A title", "File"));


you can see that in dublincore table !!
