Summary

How do we find IDs used in REST APIs that are not database IDs?

Content

Hello, 

Does anyone know why some REST APIs assign their own surrogate IDs to objects instead of using the database IDs? 

Furthermore, is there an easy way to get these IDs without having to do a GET ALL (with queries) or GET against the parent record and parse out the items to find the corresponding link? I know I can use "#1" to get to the Invoice Line itself, but if I want to get to any of the children, I need the surrogate ID. 

Howdy, Stranger!
