Pinned topic Dependability of property related ids

‏2013-10-09T15:46:42Z |

Is the site ID, analysis ID and property ID for a given property published by TEM consistent across deployments? For example, I have the property "Serial Number" from the MDM site. Will it always be (9337, 10, 8)?

    I think analysisID and property ID will be consistent across a deployment. I suppose at some point in the future though, it's possible we might reorder our properties in an analysis (maybe for readability? Or maybe we suddenly have more properties we'd like to add and they fit somewhere better in the middle?)

    I don't think that happens often though.

    I don't think site ID changes.

    Thanks for the info!


    What about property name? I assume that can change? Is it different depending on language?

    Property name may change as we may update it for clarification.

    Also property name is not required to be unique, so the same property name may be in the same analysis, site, or in any other product - or even a custom property that you have made yourself.

    Using the site id, analysis id and property id is recommended.
