List of SharePoint URL tokens

By Namwar Rizvi - Last updated: Monday, December 1, 2008 - Save & Share - 4 Comments

Following is a list of tokens available in Sharepoint to use in your URLs. Be aware that Sharepoint only replaces the value of a token once for a given string, so if you have used the same token twice, second occurance will not be replaced by the token value. I will post a solution to do it in my next article:

~site – Web site (SPWeb) relative link.

~sitecollection – site collection (SPSite) relative link.

In addition, you can use the following tokens within a URL:

{ItemId} – Integer ID that represents the item within a list.

{ItemUrl} – URL of the item being acted upon. Only work for documents in libraries. [Not functional in Beta 2]

{ListId} – GUID that represents the list.

{SiteUrl} – URL of the Web site (SPWeb).

{RecurrenceId} – Recurrence index. This token is not supported for use in the context menus of list items.

Can you tell me just what the RecurrenceID is used for? I can’t find any information on teh web concerning this.

Thank you.

Hi Tim,
RecurrenceID is the identifier (ID) of an instance of a recurrent item.

Hi Namwar,

I stumbled upon this article hoping that there is a token for a user ID. You see, here’s what I’m trying to accomplish: I created a custom mysite left nav using Microsoft’s XML data source provider referencing a site.webmap. I need to add in my site.webmap a link to a user’s document library (e.g.…aspx).

How can I do this?
