Kaltura - What is the entry identifier (EntryId) for a media item and how do I find it?
This page shows you how to identify and acquire the entry identifier (EntryId) for a media item in Kaltura MediaSpace.
When working on support issues, it is often handy for administrators to have the identifier for the media item with which you are having issues. The entry identifier is a short series of 10 characters that uniquely identifies a piece of media for troubleshooting. It is the last part of a media's direct URL within Kaltura MediaSpace. In the screenshot below, you will see the URL bar of a browser that is on a media item's page within Kaltura MediaSpace. This is the page you navigate to when you want to preview a media item that you have uploaded to Kaltura MediaSpace. The EntryId in this example is "0_nsq4ges3":
