Changing the ID of a Custom Object

For all custom objects except for custom segments, if necessary, you can change the ID after the custom object has been created. Use this feature with caution because changing the value of an ID that is being used in a script can cause the script to break with no warning messages.

For information about best practices and naming conventions, see Conventions for Naming Custom Objects.

To change the ID or Script ID of a custom object:

  1. From the custom object page, click Change ID.

  2. In the New ID field, enter the new ID.

  3. Click Save.
