2019.1 Migration Guide
⚠️ PSPDFKit Server now uses randomized unique IDs (ULIDs) for documents instead of numeric IDs. This improves scalability for users with a large number of documents.
As part of 2019.1, we require the explicit setting of the
GENERATE_ULID_DOCUMENT_IDS environment variable (introduced in 2018.7) for all installations from before 31 January 2019. The variable determines whether new documents are assigned a (deprecated) numeric ID or a ULID.
Please be aware that when uploading a document, you can also supply your own document ID that will be used by PSPDFKit Server.
While the automatically assigned document ID has always been a string, up until now, it could be converted to an integer.
We highly recommend you either migrate to ULIDs by setting
true or supply your own document ID when creating documents.
