UUID Details

Type Identifier
Description UUID stands for Universally Unique Identifiers. UUIDs are unique values used to identify pieces of information. For example, a generated UUID might map to value #1, and a second generated UUID might map to value #2. An advantage of using UUIDs over an auto-incrementing numerical identifier value is that multiple nodes can be in charge of identifying objects, versus the single source of truth that would be required with an auto-incrementing numerical value.
