Learn the differences between a Reference loan number and a Blend loan UUID (Universally Unique Identifier) and where to find them.
Loan UUIDs play an important role when troubleshooting or reporting a bug to Blend Support. Loan reference numbers can be manually set by lenders (role permitting) or via the API. Blend UUIDs on the other hand, are unique.
Tip: Both UUIDs and Reference loan numbers can be used to search. To learn what other search parameters you can use, see Search for an application.
Reference loan number
The Reference loan number -most commonly known as "loan number"- is located in the Loan information section of the application.
Things to note
- Reference loan numbers can be updated manually by lenders or via the API.
- Reference loan numbers will be updated to match your LOS after export (If your LOS is integrated with Blend and the feature is supported for your LOS).
- Reference loan numbers are not unique identifiers, therefore more than one loan can have the same number.
The Blend UUID is a unique 32 alphanumeric string included in the URL (Unique Resource Locator) located in the address bar of your browser.
Things to note
- Blend UUIDs are assigned to a Blend loan during creation.
- Unlike a Reference loan number, a Blend UUID is unique and no more than one loan can have the same value.
