Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

Hi everyone,

I have created around 100 protected areas in Iran over last few months, in order to complete the wiki page regarding these areas, I want to show them in a list with their name and OSM ids in the wiki page. Is there a way to extract Ids of objects in a .osm file? or even better is there a query which can be used to list object's Id based on a specific search criteria?

By the way I have tried Spatial Manger it shows all the tags except Ids.

Use overpass turbo and enter “boundary=protected_area in Iran” in the wizard. You'll have the data displayed on a map, and the corresponding json on the "data" tab. You can export that to a format of your liking.

Optionally, replace the "print results" section with "out ids;" so that only ids are returned (ignore the "repair query" suggestion). That might make parsing the data easier.

Also, avoid linking to object id's whenever possible. See http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Overpass_API/Permanent_ID
