When having a unique id value is a must.
Two flavors available:
Used to check for uniqueness when inserting things with an ID from an external source
Used to generate a unique ID value from an auto incrementing counter
Full documentation found HERE
Search for UniqueID to install this free plugin.
Note, This plugin utilizes a database external to Bubble to create and track values.
The documentation has lots of details, but basically you:
- Create a “service account” which establishes a user name and password for the service (You can use the demo page or an action within your own app to do this)
- Create either a UniqueID or a UniqueCounter using an action within your own app. This creates the field and thus is done only once per field.
- You then can check/generate values based on your needs using workflow actions and external api retrieval.
