Macro — Finding the ID

Every element in Boomi Flow is assigned a universally unique identifier (UUID). We can find this ID by typing macro in the address bar of the API client (or by copy-pasting api/draw/1/element/macro) and clicking GET.

Let’s see the procedure:

    1. Click API.

      This opens the Flow API client.
    2. Type macro in the address bar.
    3. Select api/draw/1/element/macro and click GET.

      This lists all the macros in our tenant, along with their metadata.
    4. We can scroll down to the macro we are looking for by name, to find the ID.

      Doing a (Ctrl+F) or a (Cmd+F) to search the macro by name also works.

Check out the glossary for a definition of terms and key concepts that appear in the Boomi Flow website, drawing tool, technical documentation, blogs, and marketing communications.
