Storyline 2 - Publishing Identifier

I know that the identifier characters need to be the same for republishing a course to my LMS.  Rather than use the Storyline-generated characters, it it okay to create my own identifier?  For example, rather than "5ePth01DrQ0_course_id" is it okay to use "BCC-6test_course_id"?

This is an excerpt from eLearning Heroes - "The Identifier field is a unique string of characters assigned by Storyline. Your LMS uses it to identify your content. If you're republishing a course that's already in your LMS, don't change the value in this field."

Thank you.

Hi Paula,

Looks like you have the documentation, so just be aware of that identifier changing if you update/edit your course.

Storyline will supply a randomly-generated Identifier on your behalf or you have the opportunity to specify the Identifier by going to Publish > LMS > Reporting and Tracking.
