Hello Jared

I have a customer, asking this quite persistently, Whether or not the UUID of a Project Area is unique in a repository.

Its been difficult to address this as most of the community post replies mention that UUID should be used in conjunction with the

In your last post you have mentioned that "You should use a project area's URL to uniquely identify it" - But when customers setup environments for thier customers, they tend to use a similar project naming convention.

While they are using automated scripts to get the UUID of the Project Area - they want a confirmation in where this UUID is indeed unique; Even if they are using multi-tenant deployment (i.e, multiple CLM deployments on a single WAS server - one CLM instance per Profile.)

From the forum discussions - its pretty evident that UUID should be always used in conjunction with ItemType (as mentioned in Finding what type of Item a UUID represents) - is there a possibility that we would have the UUID being duplicated for any object(PA name, Team name, Objects in source control) in a given repository?

Yes.  A UUID is unique within the repository.  No other object will have the same UUID, even if it is a completely different kind of object.
