Project Configurator for data Center - Custom IDs are different between Source and Target Instance

Jira 8.13.0

Project Configurator 3.7


I did a full project export from my source Instance to my Test Instance.  We noticed the IDs on the custom fields are different between the source Instance and Test Instance.  Why would the IDs be different?

The ids for fields (and all the other objects) are generated independently in separate systems.  Unless your test system is an exact copy of production where no-one has done any additional config, you won't see the same IDs for custom fields (or other objects) as the counters will immediately start to count independently on the two systems.

This shouldn't matter though, PC is fully aware of it and handles different field IDs fine.
