What is GUID

GUID : Global Unique Identifier. It is used to identify an object and to ensure its unicity. The object GUID's are generated during the analysis and are saved in the Knowledge base.

If between two versions of analysis, the GUID of an object has changed, the analyzer sees it as a new object and it creates a new object.

The analyzers for which the GUID is calculated are :
