I'm not sure if the ID is available in the same way in SPO as it is in on-prem, but logically I would use this approach:
Have a script running on a PC somewhere that periodically (once a day should be enough) grabs a list of all users in the tenant - it's also a good idea when using a list like this to have it delete all the existing entries to avoid duplicates
Script uploads the Claims-Based Auth username form and associated user ID to a list in SPO for each user it finds
Workflow gets the ID by selecting the item from the list where it finds a match on the Claims-Based Auth username form
