uuid Generator for Expression

Hi All,

I am trying to generate some uuids to popuate into a database. I am using the code uuid_generate_v4() but getting errors.

Can someone tell me what is the correct syntax that I should be using?


This is the error it is throwing.

Error in the component's properties:The method uuid_generate_v4() is undefined for the type customers

Re: uuid Generator for Expression

It is a compilation error, the method uuid_generate_v4() is undefined. If it is DB function, you should use it in the Additional columns table in the Advanced settings of txxxOutput component. Anther way to generate a uuid string is to use Java API java.util.UUID, for more information, see
