M-Files File IDs vs Object IDs
Posted by Sakari Heinonen (M-Files) on 24 August 2018 03:13 PM

M-Files normally operates on object IDs (for which there are three types: Internal, External and Original). However, in certain situations, mostly in verify and repair reports or some error messages, a file id or file version may be seen. It is important to understand that there is no relation between the file IDs and object IDs (or file versions and object versions) that could be determined from the IDs alone. M-Files links the "fileversions" internally to "objectversions". Currently there is no method available to end users to discover this relation.

In conclusion, it is important for the M-Files administrator not to mix these together.
