Can id values on files and folders can ever change once the file has been created? And are those values guaranteed to be unique?
I am currently writing an integration between box and a web portal, specifically to allow users to download documents uploaded into box via another system.
Right now my process is:
- Search for file using filename
- Validate that the file is correct.
- Download the file.
What I would like to do is call steps 1 & 2, and then store off the file id. That way if a user calls download later, I can just specify the file id to download, instead of needing to search. This only works if the id doesn't change though.
