Procore Data Model Considerations
The following sections identify certain Procore data model constraints and characteristics that you should be aware of as you design your application.
Resource ID Value Size
With the introduction of Multiple Procore Zones (MPZ), the size of resource ID values in any new Procore zone may
exceed what can be stored in a 32-bit integer. As a result, please ensure that you store ID values using a data
type capable of storing 64-bit integers or larger, such as
long long depending on your particular
Globally Unique User IDs
It is important to note that when a new user is added to Procore, the integer ID assigned to that user by the system has global scope
and is unique across all company accounts and projects within Procore. A user can therefore be a member of multiple Procore company accounts
by virtue of their unqiue email address. Furthermore, as you subsequently add that user to one or more project-level directories
within a given company, the
user_id value for that user remains the same across those projects.
In other words, the
user_id is 'inherited' from the company-level directory. Keep this aspect of the
Procore data architecture in mind as you work with Procore API endpoints that rely on or otherwise utilize
