Using email id as Node name

Avatar

Level 2

Hi,

 

I have a form to grab email id and other info for registration and saving as nodes.

 

I just want an advice on how right or safe to use email id as Node name.

 

Thanks

Hi @hptarora 

If your application requires any specific logic to create node based on certain name you can use that else you can generate node name using UUID:

UUID uuid = UUID.randomUUID();
String nodeName = uuid.toString();

 

Now all the form values can be stored as a node property in the node so it will be something like below:

@hptarora There is no such documentation, but this might be helpful where it says 150 chars.

https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OAK-2644

 

You can put upto 350 characters (500 characters is max) as per the above ticket.

 

But using the GUID should not be an issue as I am using already this on my system and it works perfectly fine.

Hi,

you can encode an email to get a unique node name and use that as a node name.
