Company PermIDs Changing Over Time

Hi,

I've noticed that some companies have PermIDs (OrgPermIDs) that change over time, with the metadata (the knowledge graph, the linked stock quote) being migrated from one to the other. There doesn't appear to be any obvious reason why this occurs, could I please get some product specialist insight into why and when this happens?

It is troublesome to monitor these changes over time, is there a notification channel or other way that these alterations can be broadcast as they happen?

Here are some examples of companies that have had changes in their main OrgPermID (with most of the earlier ones now resting as stub records):

TPG Telecom: 4295856742 -> 5000944028
Pietdmont Lithium: 4295858258 -> 5080197010
US Ecology: 4295905515 -> 5071084498
Cimpress: 5000103184 -> 5071559705
Myovant: 5051001953 -> 5052135300
JD Health: 5076389497 -> 5076941233
Inmobiliaria: 5038075738 -> 4295889320
Forterra: 5036753213 -> 5050704333


Thank you!

as you can see, those are not the same companies. PermID cannot be changed for an organization, it stays permanent (that is why we call it PERM ID). Instruments can move between organizations, as companies change its status, getting acquired or merged.

Please let us know if you have any questions, we'll be happy to assist.

Best Regards,

Thank you for this investigation Aleksandra. I see that instruments can move between orgs so I'll likely have to monitor this from my side.
