Hi David,

Yes some of the reports have in fact changed their ID since not all the IDs were being generated
in older versions of OONI and they were being added in the normalisation stage of the data pipeline.

If you need to know the mapping between the old IDs and the new ones I think I can come
up with a way to do that, but can require a bit of time.

Can I ask what you were using the IDs for?
