Value list ID by alias


Resolves a single value list alias to its ID.

The alias should be URI-encoded. If resolving multiple aliases, or your alias contains the character \, then it is recommended to use /structure/valuelists/itemidbyalias, or /structure/metadatastructure/itemidbyalias.


Output: int
  Returns the ID of value list with the given alias, or -1 if none could be found.

If multiple value lists have the same alias then -1 will be returned.
