    We need some unguessable verification-key, for deeplinking back to our plaform.

    We did that by concat some fields and md5 it, but that does not work in beast mode.


    the MYSQL dataflow will take too long to run on each dataset update. 


    im now looking into storing a random verification-key in our db and include that in the ETL,


    but im open for suggestion might you have it!
