Tip: You can locate the site id of a course or project site by using the admin Sites tool to search for the site and view/edit its details, or by accessing the site and copying the site id from the URL displayed in your web browser. The site id is the string of characters displayed just after the /site/ portion of the URL.

For example, in the following URL, the site id is shown in bold: http://qa3-us.sakaiproject.org:8086/portal/site/DAC-EDUCATION-DEPT1-SUBJ1-101

Click on the realm id.
