Update 2019-09-09: Add SharePoint REST API

What is a Tenant ID? When you subscribe to Microsoft 365, Microsoft provides you a full environment with several services (SharePoint, Teams, Azure Active Directory, etc.). In order to link all of these services between them and on your environment, they use an unique identifier which is your Tenant ID.

The Tenant ID is represented as GUID: 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000

Generally, you do not need to know your Tenant ID but sometimes, essentially for the developers or when your company needs to deploy an app (ex: enable PowerBI Microsoft 365 Usage Analytics), you need to.

How to retrieve your Tenant ID? Here, some ways to find it!

Azure Active Directory

By default, all the users of your company have access to the Azure Portal.

Once you are connected to your https://portal.azure.com, clic on Azure Active Directory, then Properties and this is the Directory ID

Once you are connected to your SharePoint Admin Center (https://yourdomain-admin.sharepoint.com), clic on Classic features from the left navigation, then clic on Open under Apps section and clic on App Permissions (last link).

On this page, you will see some Apps with an unique identifier. Each identifier contains a claim with an ID followed by an at ("@") and your Tenant ID (ex: i:0i.t|ms.sp.ext|[email protected])

SharePoint site

It is a little bit more complex to find the Tenant ID from a SharePoint site but you can do it too.

Web Inspector

Open any modern SharePoint site (or classic) and open the Web Inspector / Web Developer Console

  • On Windows, it is generally F12
  • On MAC OS X, it is generally CMD + OPTION + i

Once opened, launch a search on "siteSubscriptionId"

  • On Windows: CTRL + F
  • On MAC OS X: CMD + F

Firstly, open your favorite web browser and go to any SharePoint site collection then, edit the URL like this:

https://contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/mysite/_api/SP.UserProfiles.PeopleManager/GetMyProperties
Replace contoso by your own domain name.

the result will be a little bit huge... But perform a search on "SPS-DistinguishedName":
