After hearing some great customer feedback, we've added a new Project ID feature.
Project IDs allow you to keep a robust record of all your projects in Hive. Unlike project names, project IDs will never change and can be used to reference Hive projects in other locations such as a shared drive.
Enable Project IDs
To enable project IDs, go to Your profile dropdown > Your workspace > Settings. Here, you will see the option to 'Enable project IDs'
Note: Only admins will be able to turn on this setting
Depending on the size of your workspace and how many projects are currently in flight, it may take a few minutes to load your project IDs. You will receive a notification when the project IDs have finished loading and will be prompted to refresh your page.
Where can I find them?
Q: Can I customize my project IDs?
A: At the moment, you cannot customize the logic or change project IDs.
Q: What happens if IDs are turned off? Will projects have the same ID when the setting is turned on again?
A: Yes - project IDs are permanent. Even if the setting is turned off and then back on again, the project IDs will not change.
