JIRA Project ID

How do you find out the ID associated with a JIRA projec - so, not the key, but the actual ID as I need to use it in a URL that will be a button, than, when clicked, automatically populates the correct project and issue type. Issue type I can get from the URL after navigating to it within Administration. But, am having a hard time finding it for the project in any URL - it always references the key. Any ideas?

If you navigate to your Project list in the Administration, you can find the Project ID (pid) in the URL of the 'Edit' button. (http://yourjira.com/secure/project/ViewProjects.jspa)

Alternatively, you can select * from project in the JIRA database.

That's what I thought I did before. However, now, when i edit the project, a modal dialog displays instead of navigating to a separate URL. However, it did give me the id that if I viewed source and searched for pid I could locate it -- which I did. I don't have access to the db directly (without lots of requests!). Thanks!

You can also simply copy the link of the Edit button instead of opening the page source. :)

^^^^^^ this works. (thumbsup)

Probably best to mention to view the Page Source, you don't need to open the Edit Window. You have to look for the PID for that project. All the projects will be listed on that page.
