markusthoemmes opened a new pull request #3396: Self-generate random strings without going through a UUID. URL: https://github.com/apache/incubator-openwhisk/pull/3396 ## Description ActivationIDs are generated via UUID.randomUUID() today. Looking through the code of that you'll notice that it only generates a random hexadecimal String, delimited with dashes. We then proceed to cut out the dashes to end up at our ActivationId format. We can straight up jump to generate the String ourselves. This even has the added benefit of adding more entropy to that String, because the UUID contains some bytes to determine its version (which are fixed bytes). ## Related issue and scope <!--- Please include a link to a related issue if there is one. --> - [ ] I opened an issue to propose and discuss this change (#3395) ## My changes affect the following components <!--- Select below all system components are affected by your change. --> <!--- Enter an `x` in all applicable boxes. --> - [ ] API - [X] Controller - [ ] Message Bus (e.g., Kafka) - [ ] Loadbalancer - [ ] Invoker - [ ] Intrinsic actions (e.g., sequences, conductors) - [ ] Data stores (e.g., CouchDB) - [ ] Tests - [ ] Deployment - [ ] CLI - [ ] General tooling - [ ] Documentation ## Types of changes <!--- What types of changes does your code introduce?
