Is there a native way to generate a UUID? Could this be a custom formula? Currently using
<https://www.uuidgenerator.net/api>

We can certainly request this, could definitely be a formula. For the moment we have a random function that you can use to pick a random number, or you could explode an array of one item and that’ll generate a unique guid for you, or obviously use uuidgenerator

Story run guids are unique also

I was thinking story run guid, but wondered if that could be leaked somehow. Working on a personal story that requires a login to present a UUID. You’d still need to know the credentials at which point you could just login, so I don’t think there’s a risk. Just wondered if I was missing the function. Thanks both!

Run another action before it. Individual events don't generate the guid
