This topic will provide you with a basic overview of Ironclad IDs.
Every workflow and corresponding record has an associated Ironclad ID. The Ironclad ID acts as a contract’s unique identifier throughout its entire lifecycle. When you archive a workflow, the resulting record shares the workflow’s Ironclad ID. If you upload a record directly to the Repository it will be assigned a unique Ironclad ID.
The format of an Ironclad ID is a standard prefix (IC) and a number that increases sequentially based on the the creation or upload date of the workflow or record. . For example, “IC-1”. The standard prefix is “IC” for all companies. If you want to customize the prefix, reach out to Ironclad Support.
The Ironclad ID can be found in three places:
|The Info panel of a workflow.|
|The metadata of a record, located under Other Contract Info.|
|The Dashboard or Repository as a column. You can manually add a new column for the Ironclad ID. The Ironclad ID is then included in your exports.|
