FileDataIDs (or FileID) uniquely identify files in the Content Addressable Storage Container, and have been used as a replacement for internal file paths since Patch 7.0.3.

For example, the "Interface/Icons/Temp.blp" texture can also be referred to using its 136235 FileDataID.

  • FileDataIDs are searchable on wow.tools, a CSV file (semicolon separated) is also available there:

  • A Lua table of interface textures is available from:
