How can I retrieve the Identifier ( URL key ) of current page in Magento 2?


you can get the page id like this:

$pageId = $this->_request->getParam('page_id', $this->_request->getParam('id', false));

if you are not in a controller, you need to inject an instance of \Magento\Framework\App\RequestInterface in your class.

You also need to inject an instance of \Magento\Cms\Api\PageRepositoryInterface in your class and then you can call:

$page = $this->pageRepository->getById($pageId);
$url = $page->getIdentifier();

So, your class can look like this:

namespaece Your\Namespace\Here;

class SomeClassName extends SomethingElse 
    protected $_request; //only if this is not a controller
    protected $pageRepository;
    public function __construct(
        \Magento\Framework\App\RequestInterface $request,
        \Magento\Cms\Api\PageRepositoryInterface $pageRepository,
    )  { 
        $this->_request = $request; //only if not in a controller
        $this->pageRepository = $pageRepository;
    public function getCurrentPageUrlKey()
        try {
           $pageId = $this->_request->getParam('page_id', $this->_request->getParam('id', false));
           $page = $this->pageRepository->getById($pageId);  
           return $page->getIdentifier();
        } catch (\Magento\Framework\Exception\NoSuchEntityException $e) {
            return null;
  • Thank you for the help I got it working by following method public function getIdentifier() { try { $objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance(); $configHelper = $objectManager->create('\Magento\Cms\Api\PageRepositoryInterface'); $pageId = $this->_request->getParam('page_id', $this->_request->getParam('id', false)); $page = $configHelper->getById($pageId); return $page->getIdentifier(); } catch (\Magento\Framework\Exception\NoSuchEntityException $e) { return null; } } – nuwaus May 16 '16 at 19:01

    even if it works, using the object manager is not a recommended practice. – Marius May 16 '16 at 19:57

Copy this code in any phtml file to get current cms page id and identifier in magento2:


$objectManagerCms = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
$cmsPage = $objectManagerCms->get('\Magento\Cms\Model\Page');

echo $cmsPage->getIdentifier(); //Current CMS Page Identifier

echo $cmsPage->getId(); //Current CMS Page ID


You can use following to get current page Identifier :


You can use in Helper like this:

namespace Your\Namespace\Helper;

class Data extends \Magento\Framework\App\Helper\AbstractHelper{

protected $objectManager;

public function __construct(
    \Magento\Framework\ObjectManagerInterface $objectManager,
    $this->objectManager = $objectManager;

public function getCurrentPageIdentifier() {

   $_cmsPage = $this->objectManager->get('\Magento\Cms\Model\Page');
   $_cmsPageURL = $_cmsPage->getIdentifier();
   return $_cmsPageURL;


And call in phtml:

$_Helper = $this->helper('Your\Namespace\Helper\Data');

$_pageIdentifier = $_Helper->getCurrentPageIdentifier();

echo $_pageIdentifier;

Hope this can help your.


If you need the query string (the bit after the ? in a URL), that part is in this variable:

  • this won't work if you have an url rewrite. For example if a page has the url key page but you have an url rewrite from page1 to page and you call the url page1 your code will return page1 instead of page. – Marius May 16 '16 at 12:15
