Be careful exporting documents on case-insensitive systems

When using the import/export feature in Prismic, it’s worth being aware that document ids (which are used as filenames) are case-sensitive, and very often the only difference between two ids will be a different case letter. Being unaware of this has caused us all sorts of issues recently and I’m suggesting that it would be useful to make this clear in the documentation.

For anybody wondering how we solved this problem, we simply created a case-sensitive disk image that we export to and import from.

Hi Ben,

Welcome to the community.

Thanks for pointing this out. I’ve added this to our documentation backlog.

Thanks for bringing this up. I got burned by this issue myself. In our case, I had to change the collation of specific columns in our database.
