Machine names showing weird

Paulo Diovani Gonçalves 6 years ago updated by Paul Sinclair 6 years ago 0
The machine names on my page (http://www.codeivate.com/users/paulodiovani) are showing JSON data.

Also, I think there'is a mismatched machine name, for since I started use Codeivate I developed for 4 diferent machines.


How can I fix that?
How can I check wich machine has each id?

Hi Paulo,

Thanks for reporting this!

I have made a fix that should stop it happening in the future and also temporarily cleaned up your data to fix your issue now. 

When you run Codeivate it tries to give each machine a unique id (using a UUID library) As you are coding it passes up the machine id and a machine name. If you change the machine_name that you are passing up it will modify the machine name on your profile for that machine. You can also set multiple machines to have the same machine name and they will all combine under the same name. 

if you want to split the results out again in the future just change the machine name and do some more coding and it will separate out on your profile.

The machine name can be set in your config file, if you don't set one it will generate a random one (these are pulled from the US census data)

Hope that helps! Let me know if that's not making sense.

Cheers,
Paul
