How to get the SharePoint repository ID

When setting up a connection to SharePoint 2010 from PDF Converter, a connection URL must be used in the following format: 

http://<hostname>/_vti_bin/cmis/rest/<repository-id>/getRepositoryInfo

The <repository-id> in the above URL is the ID for the SharePoint list or document library you're trying to access.

One of the ways to get this ID is to open your site in SharePoint Designer, navigate to "Lists and Libraries", and select the one you're trying to access.

The resulting page will contain a value for "List ID" that looks similar to {A200A400-A4D5-48F2-81AE-B25ADF8DB0CF}.

The ID that you find in the curly braces is the value you should use for the <repository-id> part of the URL.
