Strapi V4 UID doesn't generate/update as expected

System Information
  • Strapi Version: 4.1.11

  • NPM Version: 8.11.0
  • Yarn Version: 1.22.17

We just completed our upgrade from V3 to V4 and everything went quite well. Our last outstanding issue is that UID fields do not behave as expected.

In this video we see that the UID field updates every time the user stops typing in the target field

That’s how it used to work in V3 but in V4 it will only update the UID field once and then leave it until you click the “Regenerate” button.

This is not a showstopper by any means but it is a vulnerability for our team as we want to have semantic slugs for our blog endpoints. Any suggestions on how to fix this, or is this a known bug?

Maybe there is a way to configure how/when the UID is generated but there is not any description in the docs Fields for Content Types - Strapi User Guide

Yeah, we have the same problem and i just found Your post looking for a fix… Oh well…

Any solution for this? I’m facing the same issue in V4.3.6

Yeah, Regenerate does not work in 4.11.4 I have no idea when it stopped working though
