The following was retrieved from the docstring #+begin_quote This will scan all agenda files, all associated archives, and all files currently mentioned in ‘org-id-locations’. #+end_quote This implies that when that function is executed, the files whose content is searched for IDs (i.e. they are scanned) are + The files mentioned in =org-agenda-files=. + The archives associated to the files in =org-agenda-files=. + The files mentioned in =org-id-locations=. + The files provided as arguments to the =org-id-update-id-locations=. The following are not mentioned in the documentation of =org-id-update-id-locations=, but when looking at the source code, you can see that the value of the following variables is used + =org-id-extra-files= + =org-id-files= As we could see, the files which are scanned are defined by 6 variables. Now, apparently, you want to get a list of the files which are scanned. You can do that by executing what =org-id-update-id-locations= executes in order to get the list of files to scan. The following was retrieved from that function with some modifications #+begin_src elisp :results output (let ((files (delete-dups (mapcar #'file-truename (append (org-agenda-files t org-id-search-archives) (unless (symbolp org-id-extra-files) org-id-extra-files) org-id-files))))) (dolist (file files) (princ (format "%s\n" file)))) #+end_src #+RESULTS: #+begin_example /home/username/my/org/Statistics.org /home/username/my/org/Programming languages/Elisp.org /home/username/my/org/Programming languages/R.org #+end_example Hope that helps. Let me know if that answers your question.
