Why does the new alert ID has more than 8 characters ?
Following the CBC backend update on 26 August 2021 to version 0.69, Carbon Black Cloud has aligned on the GUID format as our standard for all types of alerts in the product including CB Analytics to better unify alerts within our platform.
This change should have no effect on user behavior, nor will it affect your ability to search on past alerts that use the shortened "legacy_alert_id" format.
The field "legacy_alert_id" will be deprecated in a future API revision.
