Create a Java action to do that for you.

 

The Java code is really simple:

return Core.retrieveId(getContext(), Core.createMendixIdentifier(guidParm));

yes

retrieve from database

using a hardcoded string

[id = ‘1234567’] 

or using a variable

[id = $Variable]

It's really strange that this is not working (or no longer). You can always add another attribute and use the comm.commons getGUID action to set it.

I suggest upvoting this idea

and else, there's always java

Yes, I stumbled on this as well. I ended up saving the GUID on the object and using that in my selections.
