How do you find the UUID for a repository workspace?

 Is there a way in the eclipse client to the get the uuid or do you need to go to the command line?  If so how do it from the command line?

 I'm not aware of any exposure of the UUID in the Eclipse client (though it would be nice!).

You can get it from the web UI: just navigate to a workspace and then look at the address bar; the UUID of the workspace should be associated with the id parameter in the request.

You can also use scm -u list workspaces from the command line.

 Another alternative is to open the repository workspace editor (select the repository workspace in the Pending Changes view, right click, then run 'Open') and get the URI from the header (right click on the header and select 'Copy URL'):


The last segment of the URL is the UUID:
