  • Generate a UUIDv1 (based on time and system's hardware address, if present):
     
    uuid
     
  • Generate a UUIDv4 (based on random data):
     
    uuid -v {{4}}
     
  • Generate multiple UUIDv4 identifiers at once:
     
    uuid -v {{4}} -n {{number_of_uuids}}
     
  • Generate a UUIDv4 and specify the output format:
     
    uuid -v {{4}} -F {{BIN|STR|SIV}}
     
  • Generate a UUIDv4 and write the output to a file:
     
    uuid -v {{4}} -o {{path/to/file}}
     
  • Generate a UUIDv5 (based on the supplied object name) with a specified namespace prefix:
     
    uuid -v {{5}} ns:{{DNS|URL|OID|X500}} {{object_name}}
     
  • Decode a given UUID:
     
    uuid -d {{uuid}}
