Retrieve buff id by name

Hi everyone, there is an API that allows, if I have for example the buff "Blood Shield," to give me his id? Not the spell ID, but the buff index that I can then use in the API GameTooltip:SetUnitBuff ("UnitID", buffIndex).

Thank you in advance

GameTooltip:SetUnitAura/Buff/Debuff actually works the same way that UnitAura/Buff/Debuff does -- you can just pass it a name directly. I just verified with this:

GameTooltip:SetUnitBuff("player", "Lightning Shield")
