Engage - Gloassary Interaction

Okay, instead of copying and pasting each one of my terms at a time *I think we have close to 500* I was considering copying and pasting each term over to engage, I was thinking of formatting all of the definitions at once in a text document but when I opened the data.xml file I found that the terms all had very long "Step id"s:

    <Step id="a134eb11-664a-4e84-b544-ec8d6659e485" name="APHIS" title="" number="5" html="<p align='left'><font face='Articulate' size='13' color=''>Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service<TAB></TAB>Part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture with the basic charge of protecting American agriculture and provides leadership in ensuring the health and care of animals and plants.</font></p>">
    </Step>

I changed them to starting at 1 and increasing and resaved the data.xml file and the Glossary still works fine, I was just wondering if there was some sort security risk in doing this.  Thanks in advance!

Jeff,

No security risk. That's a GUID generated to ensure that there's no chance you'll ever have a repeat in your sequence. The id is a key value. I think that GUID is a little over the top for the purposes of a glossary. You shouldn't need to worry too much about using a sequential ID. The results will be the same
