A Universally Unique Identifier (UUID), also known as a Globally Unique Identifier (GUID), is a unique, 128-bit, 36-character identifier that you generate for your app using a UUID/GUID generator. Your app must provide a UUID when it registers with the BBM social platform to access the social platform APIs. The UUID string must conform to the Microsoft 8-4-4-4-12 format (xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx). Valid characters consist of hexadecimal values in the ranges 0 to 9 and a to f.
The UUID is also used to identify your app (along with the vendor name and the app name) in the pre-production test environment, before the app is made available in BlackBerry World. If the app is installed from BlackBerry World, the UUID is not used to identify it. You should use the same UUID when testing future releases of the same app. If the UUID changes across versions, different versions of the same app will not be able to communicate with each other in the pre-production environment.
