I use a lot the function sc.GetStudyArrayUsingID. However, I keep on adding and retrieving new studies, and it is time consuming to verify the IDs and update all the progs. Therefore, is it possible to detect a study ID through its Short Name ? It would very useful, as the shortname rarely changes.

Thank you for your help,

This is not supported and it is not planned. It is not considered a technically correct, efficient or reliable method to get the study ID this way.

What you need to use is a study Input that lists studies and select the study that way. Refer to the example here:
