Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-12530) Build better device.uuid for Windows 8.1 /10
Date Thu, 02 Mar 2017 12:17:45 GMT
Felix Schauerte created CB-12530:

             Summary: Build better device.uuid for Windows 8.1 /10
                 Key: CB-12530
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Plugin Device, Windows
            Reporter: Felix Schauerte

Currently the device uuid is read from Windows.System.Profile.HardwareIdentification.getPackageSpecificToken(null).id

This value depends on the hardware configuration of the device. It will e.g. change even if
a USB drive gets (dis)connected.

To provide a more stable device uuid you coud use the following snippet. The value would then
depend on device and user and would even 'survive' an app uninstall.

var easClientDeviceInformation = new Windows.Security.ExchangeActiveSyncProvisioning.EasClientDeviceInformation();
var deviceUUID =;
