how can i find the page ID url?

How can I find the page ID url when the human-readable, page name url is in use?  (For linking to Confluence pages from outside of the Atlassian suite to prevent link break over time?  Would the tiny link suffice for this or is there a way to get the page ID url at any time?)

Hi Mallory,

You can head to ellipsis.png > Page Information and the pageID will be in the URL. You just need to change the URL from viewinfo.action to viewpage.action.

Not sure what you mean by "page ID url"

on the page you need to have a link to, press the letter "k" on your keyboard - the link is usable externally (as long as the person receiving it has Permissions to access that Space) and is permanently linked to that page even if you change the title of the page.

Right now the only way I know to do this is to go to the Edit Page view, and then replace "editpage" with "viewpage" in the URL.  You can't consistently go to the Page Information because it may or may not be using the Page ID to compose the URL (and Tiny URLs are not persistent) - it could be using the page name.  It doesn't appear that there is any consistent place you can go to always find the persistent url that uses the Page ID.
