Articulate Rise Inquiry : Generated Lesson URL : Was there a recent update on this?

When we create a lesson in our Rise courses, it generates a unique lesson link for that specific lesson.

You can see this if you open the developer mode of Chrome, or if you look at the browser address field

Example:

Chrome developer mode:
#/lessons/NJBBbkENk3oZ6vB8DKS0nrPBfYgn4FtA

Chrome devtools

Browser URL field:
https://rise.articulate.com/author/CTwydBy3_on5XdCXUQmOoNSe9iG4Y8u3#/author/details/NJBBbkENk3oZ6vB8DKS0nrPBfYgn4FtA

In the example above, NJBBbkENk3oZ6vB8DKS0nrPBfYgn4FtA is the "unique" lesson id created.

Why is this important to us?

Since Rise doesn't have a  glossary feature, we are using lessons as a form of glossary. 

http://glossary.srainternational.org/#/

We link keywords from a separate Rise course to the lessons acting as glossary terms residing in the URL above.

Issue:

Before, even if we send the Rise course back and fourth for development, there unique lesson links doesn't change. If a lesson has NJBBbkENk3oZ6vB8DKS0nrPBfYgn4FtA assigned to it, it doesn't change at all. This is the reason why we are able to take advantage of this workaround to create a glossary in the form of lessons.

Now, when I simulate the issue, by sending a copy of the Glossary course to my team, each of this lesson links changes too. :( Thus, the link is broken when a user clicks it.

Question:

Is there a change in behavior with Rise, specifically when creating this unique lesson links, after the update in the log in? This issue only arose after the update. 

I hope someone from the team can help us in answering this inquiry. This is very important to our project.

Thanks,

Sid
