You can check this info using Integration Center:

  1. Open Integration Center
  2. Click on "My Integrations" and and then create a "Scheduled Simple File Output Integration"

  3. Select PerPerson as the starting entity, select the fields "personIdExternal" and "personId" and click on Select button at the bottom to proceed

  4. Go to "Filter and Sort" tab and select "Advanced Filters"
  5. Select "Person Id" field in the filter (the one which would refer to personIdExternal) and filter out for the value shown on "Employee ID" field under Biographical Information portlet in the employee's People Profile
  6. Go to "Configure Fields" tab and the employee's personId will be shown

You can just cancel the integration creation afterwards, it's not required to save it since you already got the employee's personId.
