Retrieve work item id in workflows


is there any option to retrieve the id of a work item within a workflow?

According to the documentation of the YouTrack REST API work items do have an ID, but till now we weren't able to access the field within a workflow. Is there any chance to do so?

I'm Sergey from the YouTrack team.

No, that's not possible, I'm afraid. We have a related feature request in our public tracker: Please feel free to vote for this issue. This helps us gauge how much impact this feature will have on our customer base, and you’ll also get subscribed to the issue’s notifications.

Just in case, you can send HTTP requests from a workflow, though.
