Restore site backups confidently with persistent IDs

Previously, restoring a site backup would cause CMS collection and item IDs –as well as Ecommerce, Page, and Asset IDs– to reset, requiring developers to reconfigure any API connections keyed off of those IDs.

Through our recent investments to make these IDs persistent, you can now confidently restore site backups without worrying about disrupting existing API connections.

Please note: This update applies to all site backups moving forward, not historical site backups. If you restore a historical site backup, your CMS, Ecommerce, Page, and Asset IDs will reset. If you’ve never restored a site backup, your IDs are persistent now and retroactively (in other words, you’re in the clear!).
