Publishing to Tin Can API - Title and Identifier

When using storyline to publish to Tin Can API, are there any restrictions on the title and identifier? IE: Limited number of characters, no spaces, or no dashes, and do the title and identifier have to match?

I saw that when published the web browser pulls the title from there, so I'm hoping the title can be formatted normally.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for reaching out and asking about the restrictions for the Tin Can API Identifier.

We have some documentation here and normally the Identifier is auto-assigned:

You can see that my file name is different than the Title I manually entered for the LMS Course Information, but the Identifier is still the value set by Storyline.

This field is treated as a string, similar to a URL. Users have mentioned errors when a space is used.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
