Subject [jira] [Commented] (OFBIZ-8343) Make data type field length of id fields accept guid ids
Date Thu, 15 Dec 2016 20:57:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-8343?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15752493#comment-15752493

Scott Gray commented on OFBIZ-8343:

I'm confused by the intent of this patch because OFBiz doesn't generate UUIDs for id columns,
it generates sequenced numbers.  So why would we globally change the length of a field that
ultimately won't contain auto-generated UUIDs without customization?

Additionally, we have the id-long field type which a user can switch to for specific tables
if they want to use a different type/length ID.

Lastly, certain tables have no need whatsoever for UUIDs (status, type, enumeration etc.)
so it doesn't make sense to make this a global field-type change.
