UUID has the various attribute as we already discussed above. Using any of its attribute value, we can reproduce the same UUID. Alternatively, you can use seed value to generate the same UUID. Let see both the ways. UUID class. If you have any of the above values, you can generate a UUID. Let see this with an example. I have used all these values of the same UUID.
For testing purpose, we need to generate the same UUID again, and again.
Also, uuid1 is not safe, i. Python 3. Let see the example I tested the following code on my windows 7 os to find uuid is safe or not.
Let see what it returns. To practice what you learned in this article, I have created a Python random data generation Quiz and Exercise project.
