How to Get the Tenant ID in SharePoint Online?

Requirement: Get Tenant ID from SharePoint Online.

What is my SharePoint Online Tenant ID?

When you subscribe to Office 365, You’ll be assigned a unique identifier as your Tenant ID.  This Tenant ID is a GUID that links all the services in your Office 365 environment. At times, you may need to know your Tenant ID, E.g. When deploying 3rd party applications, setting up a group policy for OneDrive for Business, PowerBI Adoption Pack, etc.  So, How do I retrieve my Tenant ID? Here, some ways to find it!

How to Find the SharePoint Online Tenant ID?

To get tenant id from SharePoint Online, follow these steps:

  • Login to your SharePoint Admin Center: https://tenant-admin.sharepoint.com
  • From the SharePoint admin center, navigating to the App pages by Click on the “More features” link from left navigation >> Click on the “Open” button under “Apps”
  • From the Apps page, click on the “App Permissions”  link. (URL shortcut: https://tenant-admin.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/TA_AllAppPrincipals.aspx)
  • The App Permissions Page lists all apps, display name and app identifiers. In the “App Identifier” column, what we get after the @ symbol is our Office 365 Tenant ID. So here in my case, the Tenant Id is “fa3d1825-7b1c-42c6-bbce-cxah5a6dd192”
