I have an InfoPath 2013 form with multiple views with a lot of fields for users to fill out. My final page after the user submits the form through the main data connection is a view that says "Thank you. Your request has been submitted." What I'm trying to do here is display the ID number from the SharePoint list as a reference for the user. I believe the ID gets created in SP once an item is created, but I can't get the ID to display on my InfoPath form. It keeps showing blank. Can somebody please help me?

Thank you so much.

Create a secondary data connection to get the list data, then from data connection selection list from the right side panel, select the secondary data connection and drag and drop the ID field to form.

For reference, you can refer to the below article :
