• How to Find the Course ID in Udemy Business

    This article outlines how admins can find the course ID for a course in Udemy Business.  While there are a variety of ways to find the course ID, below are a few simple methods to do this.

    Method 1: Download the Course List

    One method to find course IDs is to download your Udemy Business Course Catalog which will include the course ID in the full catalog export.  Note that you must be a Udemy Business admin to do this method.

    The course ID will be available in the first column titled “id” next to the title.  If you are looking for a particular course ID and know the title, you can search for the title of the course and find the corresponding course ID next to it.


    Please note:

    • You can find the course ID in other downloaded reports as well such as User Course Activity. However, the course IDs will only populate for courses where there is associated learning data. Thus, the full course list export ensures you’ll get all the course IDs for all courses regardless of whether there is learning data for those courses.

    Method 2: Find it in the HTML

    You can also find the course ID by inspecting the HTML from the course landing page:

    1. From the course landing page that you wish to find the course ID for navigate into your browser tools.  In Chrome you can do this by right clicking on the page and then clicking Inspect.


    2. Towards the very top of the HTML elements in the body section you will find the course_id:


    Method 3: Find the course ID in API responses

    If you have the Udemy Business API enabled and have a tool like Postman to make sample requests to the Udemy Business API you will see the course ID returned in various Udemy Business API endpoint responses.


    Please note:

    • In your browser URL bar you can paste the course ID immediately after https://www.{{your_subdomain}}.udemy.com/ in the address bar for your Udemy Business account, and you will be taken directly to that course landing page. You can also navigate to the course at Udemy.com by adding the course ID to the end of the following URL: https://www.udemy.com/.   

    For example, pasting the following into your URL address bar:


    Takes you directly to that course landing page:

  • Importing Courses From Udemy.com to my Udemy Business Account

    The Udemy Business course collection is a curated collection of thousands of courses, across dozens of topics, which learners in your organization are able to access in their accounts. Not every course that is found in the Udemy.com marketplace, however, is included in the Udemy Business content collection.

    This article outlines how admins can import courses from Udemy.com into their Udemy Business account, and provide their account’s users with access to them. 

    Please note: this feature is only available for Enterprise customers.

    How admins can import courses from Udemy.com into their Udemy Business account

    1. Go to www.udemy.com to find the URL for the course. (Example: https://www.udemy.com/salesforcecom-admin-essentials-for-beginners)

    2. Copy/paste the link to your clipboard.

    3. Log into your Udemy Business account and go to ManageManage Courses

    4. Click on the Imported Courses link in the menu on the left side of the screen. Here you will see a list of all your Imported Courses to date, along with the enrollments in those courses and the number of licenses remaining.

    5. To import a course from Udemy.com, click on the Import Course button at the top right of the screen.

    6. Paste in the course URL and import the course. It will now appear in your account’s course collection and search results.. 

    How to provide users with access to the imported courses

    If the course you have imported into Udemy Business is listed for free at Udemy.com, all of your users will have access to enroll. There will also be unlimited licenses available to assign the course to learners in your account.

    If the course requires a payment to enroll, however, users will see the following message on the Course Landing page: “To enroll in this course, please ask an account admin to assign it to you.”

    Therefore, you will first need to purchase licenses before you can assign the course to the learners.

    • Important: Once you assign a license for an imported course to a learner, it is not possible to reassign that license, even if that learner is deactivated in the future.

    To purchase licenses, please follow the steps below.

    1. To get the best price currently available please contact Udemy Business Support.

    2. Next, find the course under ManageManage Courses  → Imported Courses. You can see the Licenses Remaining in the list and click Buy Licenses if you wish to buy more licenses for this course. Screenshot below:


    3. Enter the number of licenses you want to purchase. If you have received a discount from Support for the course, the updated price should be applied on the checkout page.

     4. Enter your credit card information and click the ‘Complete Payment’ button to submit the purchase. 


    How to access your receipt

    Once the payment has been successfully completed, a receipt will be emailed to you at the same address that you used to log in to your Udemy Business account. Note that occasionally these emails may end up in your spam or junk folder. If you are unable to locate the receipt, please contact our Udemy Business Support team so we can assist.
