Persistent IDs for Senses
Closed, ResolvedPublic5 Estimated Story Points


As a data-reuser I want to be able to refer to Senses of a Lexeme in a consistent manner via stable identifiers.

Currently when saving a newly added Sense on a Lexeme it does not get a stable ID.

Acceptance criteria:

  • New Senses get an ID
  • An ID is not re-used after deletions etc.
  • IDs follow the pattern L123-S1
  • New ID = highest previously used ID +1
  • IDs stay the same after page reloads

GIVEN I am on a Lexeme page
AND I add a new Sense
THEN the new Sense gets an ID

  1. API use-case
  2. It's not really ideal, it'll be used for linking senses (like in translation), hopefully in the future we will improve on that.

This all seems to work fine. One thing I can not test is not reusing of IDs because I can't remove a Sense at all. Let's quickly chat about how to move forward with that.
