There is no doubt that Discord is becoming one of the most popular VoIP and instant messaging platforms that allows users to hang out with like-minded people in niche communities of interest.
Discord allows you to create communities called servers where you can communicate via text messages (text channels) or voice or video calls (voice channels).
The good thing is that Discord allows users to manage their servers effectively by creating and assigning various roles to people they trust and prioritize.
Every role has a specific ID that helps design bots and also for developers.
Let’s learn how to get Discord role IDs that distinguish every role from the other.
You can get the role ID to copy it by mentioning the role. First, go to the “Server Settings” and enable the option “Allow anyone to @mention this role” under “Roles.” Next, use the “@[role-name]” command to mention the role. Replace “[role-name]” with the role name you want to generate the ID of, and hit Enter. You will get the role ID to copy it.
The scope of this article is to teach how to copy role ID via the Discord mobile app without programming. Let’s dive in!
What Is Role ID on Discord?
When you create any server, you can create different roles from Admin, Moderator, Staff to the ambassador, etc., to help you manage your server effectively.
The idea is to ensure all members follow the rules of participation and that a positive environment in the community prevails.
Even if the name of a role changes, your mention will still work because of role ID.
Let’s learn the whole process of how to get and copy role ID on the Discord Mobile App without complex programming.
How To Copy the Role ID on Discord Mobile?
You can copy and ping the Role ID on Discord by mentioning the role on your server, as explained in the steps below.
Step #1: Allow Everyone To Mention the Role
To retrieve the role ID of any role, make sure you or anyone can mention this role.
To do that, go like this:
- Open Discord on your mobile device.
- Tap the hamburger menu icon in the top left corner.

- On top, next to the server’s name, tap on the three dots.
- Tap “Settings.”
