Does anyone know of a way to duplicate a base while keeping the record ids the same?

We are trying to set up a "staging" instance of our Airtable tables but we have references to the record ids outside of Airtable. This causes all of the references break because new records ids are generated when we duplicate the base.

Is there any way around this?

Thanks,

Chris

It is not possible to keep record IDs (or any of the ids) the same when duplicating a base. Can you set up your system to reference records by name or some other property?

Thanks for the quick response!

Unfortunately, it would take some re-architecting to reference a different field.

I may look into creating a script that grabs another unique value from the table and uses that to map to the correct record id in the staging table.
