While viewing instance details in Horizon, the value shown against ID is different from the value I get for UUID in API calls. Why are these both different.

The value of ID I can see in GUI under menu "Instances ---> Overview" is different from value of UUID I get from the output of API call (I use libcloud)

The instance ID is a UUID, and each instance only has one ID, which should show up both in the GUI and API calls (or CLI). You must be confusing two different UUIDs here; can you provide an example?
