How to Fetch current Record Id from Lightning Web Components (LWC)

By | February 9, 2022

This blog discusses on how to fetch the current record Id in the lightning web component. RecordId property is used in the lightning record page, and the property, i.e., recordId, is set to a current record Id.

We are using this property in a JavaScript class using a @api decorator, and we need to define recordId in public property.

Note: The lightning Web component should be added to a lightning record page.

To get Id from the lightning web component, we need to define a recordId property with @api decorator. Now let us see an example –

  • First, create a lightning web component page on any record page (Account, Opportunity, contact) using Visual studio code.
  • We are creating this LWC to get account details.
  • Give any name to the LWC page as we are giving as recordIdexample. Use Control Shift P and select SFDX: Create lightning Web Component.

Note: Alternative of Using Control Shift P is go to View and select command Palette.

  • We use this command palette to create SFDX: Create lightning Web Component. and authorize our org.
  • Now we are showing an account detail using recordId in lightning record form. We can also use some other details of the Account.

Here is an example of a JavaScript class with the name myFirstLWC.js

  • We are using this <lightning-record-view-form> to show the details of the Account using recordId.
  • We can also use some other details also related to the Account.

Note: Because we are doing for account detail page, you can also do this for contact, opportunity, etc.

Here is an example of an Html file with the name myFirstLWC.html



  • For the lightning-record page, we have given target as lightning-recordpage.
  • You can also give these details on the home page or any other page you want.

  • Go to the Account Page of the Sales.
  • Open any record or Account you want.
  • Then Click on Setup (Gear Icon) and select the edit page option.
  • On the left side, under Custom components, select your myFirstLWC component.
  • Drag and Drop on the right side of the top, click save and activate.
  • Below, you can see the Account detail on a lightning record page of the Account.
