Insight ID Field Format Change
Previously, the “Insight ID” field was represented as a sequential integer. As of August 2023, Verifi is transitioning to a more robust and universally recognized format, UUID (Universally Unique Identifier) – a 36-character string. This transition will ensure greater security and less predictability of your data.
Example of prior format:
Example of new format:
While this change offers numerous benefits, we want to highlight how this will change how you ingest and handle the data.
There are two main areas of consideration:
- With the transition to UUIDs, the ability to link to historical data using the new “Insight ID” values will be affected. Insight IDs play a key role in linking historical records including Negation and Settled events. With the introduction of the new UUID format, this linkage will be affected. As a result, you may encounter challenges in accessing previously-linked data. If you require assistance or have any concerns regarding the historical data, please reach out to our dedicated support teams.
- If your systems are programmed to receive and process a specific data type for the “Insight ID”, you will need to make adjustments to accommodate the new 36-character string UUID format.
These changes are being implemented to align with best practices and industry standards, ensuring a more robust and future-proof data management system. We understand these updates may require some effort on your end and are committed to providing any assistance or guidance you may require during this transition.
