New ID Fields ๐Ÿงฎ

We've replaced the idField list configuration option with a more constrained option, db.idField.

This option accepts an object with a kind property with a value of:

  • cuid
  • uuid
  • autoincrement

The default behaviour has changed from using autoincrement to using cuids.

To keep the current behaviour, you should set { kind: 'autoincrement' } at db.idField in your top level config.

db.idField can be set on either the top level config object:

db: {
idField: { kind: 'uuid' }

Or on individual lists:

lists: createSchema({
User: list({
db: {
idField: { kind: 'uuid' },
fields: {
name: text({ isRequired: true }),
