Here’s a tricky one. How do you get the GUID ID of a work item using SMLets?
First let’s start with getting the GUID ID of a Windows computer object.
We could do something like this:
What if we did the same thing with a work item?

And of course this works for any kind of object in the system like Windows computers for example:
