    Hey, not sure if this has been asked before, but how can we leverage the unique ID/key generator OTK is using to generate client_ident, client_key, or client_secret? There is a need for us to generate unique values for fields like salt, session key, etc. If so, which existing policies or what new policies we can use or create to achieve this goal.

    Hi peterwuny


    If you only need to produce a unique value, would the 'Generate UUID' assertion suffice for your use case?

    An alternate way is to generate uuid from mysql,

    select uuid();


    you can use a jdbc connection to fetch the uuid value.
