Import / Export using UUIDs
Would you add all the resources UUIDs to the resources returned by the GETCONTENT webservice function?
Here is the use case: In order to distribute our prodcutized views, reports, content folders and dashboards we export the resources by content sub-folder on one machine and then distribute the xml files and import them to the production environment. We export each resource in its own xml file to make maintenance in our git repo easier.
In order to map e.g. the view to the correct folder, we have to get the id (not the uuid) from Yellowfin by name, since the contentCategory and contentSubCategory elements in the export file do not contain their UUIDs. The exports also contain the ids which cannot be relied on as they are different on each Yellowfin installation.
Importing would be much easier if the export file contained all the resources' ids and the mapping options could use the uuids instead of the ids.
We also noticed that the categories and sub-categories are referred to with their reference code (which is a upper-case version of the name). It would be nice if they were referred to with uuid as well.
