Entity ID in AEM

Hello,

Our group is working to setup a Recommendations activity that is based on Adobe Analytics data. Per Adobe documentation, there is a unique ID (entity.id) that allows us to tie catalog records in Adobe Target to Adobe Analytics and AEM (see link at bottom). We'd like to grab this value and publish it to a data layer.

  1. Does this id (entity.id) automatically get generated in AEM when content is created?
    • On the other hand maybe it only applies to 'products'?
  2. If so, where can the AEM team look to find it? We cannot seem to find a reference to it in documentation, maybe the name has changed?
  3. If this id is not automatically generated in AEM, is it accurate to say that we can use any method to generate our own unique id?

Thanks in advance for any information you might have.
