with NW Portal 7.3 SP 9.

By default, objects in the Role Editor and the Workset Editor are displayed using the object name.
You can also configure the editors to display the atomic ID of each object, or to display a combination of both the object name and the object ID.
Next views (role example) are the same for role and workset editors:
Role by title:
Role by id:
