  • Thanks for the info everyone, good stuff here.

    As @elliot mentioned, the key can be any (reasonable) string starting with field_

    So while you could manually generate IDs with uniqid(), it might make more sense to use something that has meaning and you know is unique. Like maybe field_book_author or field_user_message_body where the first part might relate to the object type this is attached to.

    @elliot do you see any possible issue with this? Presuming it isn’t too difficult to make those key names unique.

    Just a thought 🙂
