[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Auto generating unique IDs

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if anyone had a suggestion (manual or automated) to create unique ids for archival objects in ArchivesSpace? We have migrated from a system that used to autogenerate consecutive 6 digital numbers for all users. I do not want to create unique IDs that are tied to the collection/series/etc. because if we reprocess, renumber, or rearrange the collection, it means we need to change all the unique ids.

Any ideas are appreciated!
