The lifeblood to any record in Dynamics365 is its GUID or Globally Unique Identifier. Unfortunately, Dynamics365 does not provide an easy way to view the GUID for a particular record without using tools inside XRMToolbox. This tutorial will show you how to easily extract GUID from a record using just your browser.
Thankfully, Dynamic365’s new UI makes the process to extract GUID a little easier by providing the GUID of the currently viewed record in the browser URL where it previously didn’t in its legacy interface. Look for the &id= followed by the GUID of the record in your URL. If you find this to be tedious, or if you access GUID’s frequently, you can easily set up a Bookmark in your browser to open a prompt window that presents the GUID and allows you to copy it.
