Use object identifiers 

Under the Object ID column of the Object backup status tab, you can see object identifiers from the source system (Microsoft 365 or Google Workspace).

Using this object identifier, and the account details from the sidebar, you can obtain more information about a particular object (email, calendar event, contact or file) from the source system.

 

Note: For SharePoint files, you will also see the site-id displayed within the Object ID, so that a file can be identified in SharePoint. 

For example, a SharePoint file ID is represented as

gr***t.sharepoint.com,7935****-****-****-****-****263fb706,4db2e18b-357a-4658-bf4a-d5b1cef52464#01IJJTHAAEM2ZLFCZSMJAL5LHCQGFUOUFB

This means:

{item-id} is 01IJJTHAAEM2ZLFCZSMJAL5LHCQGFUOUFB

and

{site-id} is gr***t.sharepoint.com,7935****-****-****-****-****263fb706,4db2e18b-357a-4658-bf4a-d5b1cef5246

This {item-id} and {site-id} information can be used in the following request to Microsoft 365 GraphAPI in order to get the object:

GET graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/sites/{site-id}/drive/items/{item-id}

https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/sites/gr***t.sharepoint.com,7935****-****-****-****-****263fb706,4db2e18b-357a-4658-bf4a-d5b1cef5246/drive/items/01IJJTHAAEM2ZLFCZSMJAL5LHCQGFUOUFB

Here are some other examples of APIs for locating an object (a) by its identifier and (b) by the account it belongs to:
