Storing of uuid

Is there any best practices for storing uuid in CrateDb?
ie in mysql it is stored as binary(16) so it takes only 16 bytes to store instead of varchar(32)

We are currently looking into adding a dedicate UUID type [1]. Right now best practice would be to use TEXT or VARCHAR.

Do you have any ETA for adding dedicate UUID type?

Hi @kamcio181,

this issue is currently a candidate for 4.7 which would be the release after the next with a potential release date end of Q3. Note that this is maybe to change (compare Projects · crate/crate · GitHub for our rough plans for upcoming releases)
