Inserts a UUID v5 into the target field.

There are two ways to use this function: with or without a namespace. Given this schema:

  "type": "record",
  "name": "events",
  "fields": [
    { "name": "input", "type": "string" },
    { "name": "id_ns", "type": "string" }

and a record such as:

  "input" : "john smith",
  "id_ns": "02b317d3-7fec-421a-89c5-3ad0eb83c79e"

There are two options for using this function:


uuid5(/input, /id_ns)

The first option will generate a simple UUID v5 that does not use a namespace in the generation process. The second will take the value of the supplied record path and use it as the namespace.

Please note that the namespace must always be a valid UUID string. An empty string, another data type, etc. will result in an error. This is by design because the most common use case for UUID v5 is to uniquely identify records across data sets.
