Why 32 digit Task ID is getting generated


when an user task is executed . Most of task Id’s are 8 digit and i see randomly 32 digit task id is getting generated. What is the reason for this?
And also i observed there is latency while fetching the 8 digit & 32 digit task id with process instance id. 32 digit task id is taking time. Can any one explain what could be the reason?

Hi @munna,

the engine contains two different ID generators: https://docs.camunda.org/manual/7.13/user-guide/process-engine/id-generator/.

A common usecase for the DB generator are JUnit tests, here you can follow the ID very easily.

The stong UUID generator is used for heavy load in the production environment.

Hope this helps, Ingo
