Universal Unique Identifier (UUID/GUID)

Is there a funtion/expression which generates an UUID? Would be a nice feature.

Hi @SimonPlazotta

I had to Google what a UUID was :slight_smile: So, right now we don’t have that in our list of available functions (Field expression functions :: Corteza Docs), but you could create an automation script to develop an expression that returns a UUID. Automation scripts :: Corteza Docs

Hope this helps.

Trick to generate a sort of UUID is to create a record, store the recordID, and delete the record afterwards. The recordID is unique within the corteza system and is of type uint64 which almost guarantees a uniqueness.
