In SP2016, for an office doc durable link has no d value in IE. it is fine with chrome. document id feature is enabled in site collection.


  1. On IE11, for a word document, clicked on the ellipsis.

  2. On the preview window, the link is displayed as https://webapp/sitecol/mydoc.doc

But in Chrome, the link displays as https://webapp/sitecol/mydoc.doc?d=w9sf34b253cb243406aa604f9d32da65b5 (expected)

Any Ideas why d string is not appended in Internet explorer?

Per my test I could't reproduce your issue.

The durable link works well both in IE and Chrome browser.

Please try as following to check the result:

  1. Clear IE browser cache.

  2. Update to the latest IE version.

  3. Open the site in inprivate window to compare the result.

  • I tried clearing cache with IE 11 and Edge, both not working. In-private window option is not available (may be policy)

  • Could you open the file in IE browser excellently? It seems that the OOS doesn't work properly in IE.
