Get current viewid in SSJS

 Each page that is connected to a datasource gets a viewid. It's displayed in the hidden field $$viewid on each xpage.
Can this be retrieved in SSJS?

Hi Fredrik,
try this (gets the $$viewid of the current view)
var id =;
or this (gets the value of the $$viewid field of the request)
var requestid = facesContext.getExternalContext().getRequestParameterMap().get("$$viewid")
