Generate a globally unique identifier (GUID).
- Generate a simple GUID (no dashes, uppercase), which is generally better when working with content types (optional)
guid command is provided as a convenience for working with field and content type IDs. Upon generation, the GUID will be copied to your clipboard for easy pasting into migrations.
About Content Type IDs
guid command is useful for creating persistent content type IDs that remain the same even when migrating to other environments. You aren’t required, however, to explicitly set an ID if you so choose. Engineer uses a content type ID manifest list, which is used to store content type IDs for any custom content types created by migrations. These content types can later be referenced by name, allowing Engineer to automatically fetch the correct content type ID even if it differs from environment to environment.
