How do you write to an existing ObjectID column?

I imported a table with custom ObjectId values that are only 4 charcters in size. When I enter a new record into this table it automatically generates a new 36 charcter ID string. Is there a way to bypass this and write our own value into objectId? Thanks

Hi, @William_Lee

When you create a new object, you just need to set the required objectId for that object. As example, you can do that in Rest Console - How you can do this

Ok that works… just wanted to know if we could do that through the Data Browser.

Hello @William_Lee,

The only way to setup the custom objectId is to create a new object using API (e.g. REST API in the Rest Console, as Marina said).
