When the Document ID service is enabled in SP2013 . The "Document preview" popup when hovered still shows the actual url of the document . How can it be changed to show the docurl instead ?


This may take up to 24 hours for the reset to take effect as a timer job will be scheduled to assign ids to documents already in the site collection.

Also, check How to reset all Document IDs.

  • Go to site settings of site collection> Document ID settings.
  • Click Reset all Document IDs in this Site Collection to begin with these characters > OK.

You can also apply the above Reset Operation and Run Now the following Timer Job from Central Administration to don't wait for 24 Hours.

  • Document ID enable/disable job
  • Document ID assignment job

The Doc ID now has been shown at View Properties Page.

I'm sorry I read it as view not preview , regarding your question, unfortunately, you can't change the actual URL to /_layouts/15/DocIdRedir.aspx?ID=QASSAS-1-4 because it's generated from DirName and Leaf Name of its record in [AllDocs] table in Content Database.
