In our solution we are using uuid's as the pk for most of our tables as a standard practice.

Since we have 300 ipads with our solution we need to ensure data integrity is good. UUID's seem to be the only way to make sure we have a unique ID for each record for all the ipads.

Is there any way to push or pull UUID's using gozync?

It appears from my testing that you can pull the UUID from the mobile device but not push it..??

Please let me know if there is a solution to getting this information to flow??

Regarding FileMaker's Get (UUID) function, it's just that; a function. We're just using it to auto-enter a unique value into each tables primary key field. You can sync that data just like you would sync any other data. As for primary keys, you actually don't need them on your zync layouts. GoZync knows what they are based on your relationships graph. Essentially your primary key fields get synced by default.
