Summary

What is an Activation ID's auto-generated format range?

Question

We noticed FlexNet Operations auto-generated Activation IDs changed from the following format:

ef58-4551-4b9e-55b4-377f-f93
to this
ef58-4551-4b9e-55b4-377f-f9

If we want to customize our Activation Utility with a format checker to prevent users from entering a bad Activation ID, what?s the format range for the auto-generator we can set parameters for within our utility?

Answer

In site/samples/idgenerator/CustomIdGenerator.java, you can see the same logic used in generateLineItemID() in the OpsEsnGenerator class. The length at least partly depends on how many non-alphanumeric characters are stripped out, but there are not more than 4 characters per group.

You can also write your own ID generator if you want control over the IDs for validation purposes.
