Your search query says it expected a different data type

Question

I tried searching for a user using the query uuid = "834-962*", but all I got back was the error message Invalid UUID string 834-962*: Expected hexadecimal UUID string. Why did I get this error message?

Answer

You got that error message because you can’t search for UUIDs using a wildcard; wildcards are reserved for string values. And what if you aren’t sure about the datatype (e.g., string; integer; Boolean; etc.) used by an attribute? Don’t worry about it; you can find this information on the Manage Schemas page.

For more information on wildcard characters, see Wildcard Characters.
