App reservation package identity is cryptic number

I recently wanted to publish another app to the store, however after creating the App reservation, I noticed that the Package Identity is the following: 20189chingucoding.46998D79F22AD. The strange thing is, that this is the only app reservation in my partner center account with a number for the second part of the package identity while the rest of the apps have their app name as the second part. Did the behavior for generating these names change or is there something I need to do?

Hello @chingucoding

Thanks a lot for this additional info given.

For now, I would like to recall some important point for this app reservation package identity concern... So, they are below as well as a couple of articles:

I- If have followed the accurate steps, you may need to update the store listing to reflect the right naming. Also, the note below brought my attention and I wanted to share it.

The Product name you select only applies to the Store listing in the language you're working in. It does not impact the name displayed when a customer installs the app; that name comes from the manifest of the package that gets installed. To avoid confusion, we recommend that each language's package(s) and Store listing use the same name.

  • found the following articles which are similar to your case scenario.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/legal/marketplace/mpa-change-history-may-2022

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/39080265/what-is-package-identity-name-and-what-does-it-correspond-to

-Then, There was a legal term update made on May but If you were doing the same process after that month I would say that this article might not apply but here it is...

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/legal/marketplace/certification-policies#114011-app-name

Furthermore, I would think that part of your naming syntax described at the beginning, it seems to be like your Azure AD ID but I could be mistaken on this one.

Looking forward to your feedback,

Cheers,

Hi @ricardosolisvillegas-4678,

thank you for your reply. The links you shared do not entirely explain the behavior I'm seeing but it seems that this does not matter much so I'll accept your reply as answer.

Hi @ricardosolisvillegas-4678 , thank you for your reply. My question is around the second part of the package identity which is not the app name but rather just a number: 20189chingucoding.46998D79F22AD compared to 20189chingucoding.UWPResourcesGallery for example. The question you linked also shows a package identity where the app name is part of the identity and not just a number.

Sure thing @ricardosolisvillegas-4678. I went to the apps and games dashboard and clicked on the "New Product" button. From that I selected the option "MSIX or PWA App". Then I entered the name and was brought the page. After that, I opened the "Product Identity" page and noticed that the package identity name did not contain the apps name but rather just the number.
