Item ID Command was removed from the game files, and is no longer obtainable.
It was included as placeholder content during early access, and replaced before full release

/itemid is an admin command that tells the player detailed information about an item that they specify. It is basically a way to read some of the item's asset file while ingame.

The usage of this command looks like this: /itemid BagSpecifier SlotSpecifier
