How to create a GUID UUID in Python

How do I create a GUID in Python that is platform independent? I hear there is a method using ActivePython on Windows but it's Windows only because it uses COM. Is there a method using plain Python?

Hello @kartiK,

If you need to pass UUID for a primary key for your model or unique field then below code returns the UUID object -

 import uuid
 uuid.uuid4()

If you need to pass UUID as a parameter for URL you can do like below code -

import uuid
str(uuid.uuid4())

If you want the hex value for a UUID you can do the below one -

import uuid    
uuid.uuid4().hex
