Numeric Object Ids

Hello,

We have been attempting to migrate our existing systems to the PlayFab platform. However it has been giving us a lot of issues for several reasons. The biggest currently is that PlayFab generates string ids where as our system requires a Int 32 numeric id for accounts, characters, ect. It would be nice to able to switch to a numeric system for ids where possible.

Can you clarify what IDs you're referring to? All our PlayFab IDs, inventory item instance IDs, etc., are all numeric. They are displayed as hexadecimal in most interfaces, and are returned as such in JSON responses - is that the confusion?

Numeric ids for things such as Entities. Our server suite automatically performs things such as DB interaction and it determines what an object is off an int32 id. Its making it impossible to integrate PlayFab without gutting and redoing majority of the system.

All those IDs are numeric. They're returned in the JSON in hexadecimal format, but you should be able to convert them trivially, using a hex-to-decimal call. What programming language are you using?
