Support for UUID V4 in App Connect

We have a project requirement to generate a V4 UUID.

In IIB10 we have generated a UUID which is V1, we have a requirement to generate V4 UUID V4, so if this support could be included, that would be good.

Currently to support generation of UUID V4 we have been advised to write our own code or use a java library which isn’t ideal, it would be helpful if this capability was built in.

    RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to make this enhancement request. We agree that this idea would bring further value to the App Connect Enterprise product. We appreciate that whilst you can invoke java libraries to meet the functional requirement, for users of Compute nodes wishing to use a native ESQL function, it would be great to enhance the product with an alternative v4 UUID function. Status of the request is updated to Future Consideration.
