The set of letters and number after /item/ is your SB ID number in the example below the SB ID number is 505bc673e4b08c986b32bf81.
- Copy the SB ID number out of the URL, paste it into mdEditor, and then click the "Retrieve SB record" button
Your record will be populated with as much data from ScienceBase as the app can pull for you:.
