Is the device name guaranteed to be unique for an application?


#1

Just curious if we can trust the device name assigned by Resin to be unique.


#2

hi @zain - I would suggest to use the UUID as the unique identifier, rather than the name


#3

the first 7 digits of the UUID are also present in the device hostname


#4

Does that mean two devices can come online with the same name?

Hey Zain,

There is a probability that two devices can come online with the same name. The UUID is the unique key you can use.
