Which symbols are possible in entry_id?

Autogenerated IDs consist of alphanumeric symbols, but there is an endpoint allowing the creation of entries with custom IDs

Which characters are allowed in the custom ID?

May Space also has a non-standard ID (containing ‘-’ for example)?

Hi @d.k.brazz,

If you choose an ID yourself it must adhere to the following rules:

  • It has a length between 1 and 64 characters.
  • It only includes alphanumeric characters, dots . , hyphens - or underscores _ .

Represented as a regular expression, this is /^[a-zA-Z0-9\.-_]{1,64}$/ .


Thankyou @gabriel, it is very helpful

No problem - glad it helped!

A follow up question: Can we set the custom Id via the UI in contentful (if so, how?) OR is it a feature that is supported only via the API?
