UID configuration parameters
With this behavior, you can extract unique and static identifiers (UID) of vehicles from live traffic. Extracting UIDs enables logging traffic data for individual vehicle reports, bandwidth and cars reports, and OTA Updates API reporting.
You can configure the UID configuration behavior in the default rule or add any number of UID configuration behaviors in separate custom rules to better control UID extraction from live traffic.
