Is it possible to generate an objectId?

In the “text” menu of Codeless blocks there is a block to create a UUID:


Is it possible to use this to generate an objectId for an object that is to be created in a table? Or are objectId’s exclusively set/chosen by the system? In 2016 the answer seems to have been “not possible, these system values cannot be set client-side” but I thought I’d ask again (now in 2023) :grinning:

7 years later you can definitely set a custom objectId on the client side (make sure to use the Upsert API when you save an object).

That is awesome. Thanks for the nearly instantaneous answer!
